More Stitching and Sewing


Here is a photo of DD#3's beautiful stitching from our family stitching day.




My 1980 Sears Kenmore sewing machine has sewn its last for me.  It hasn't been serviced in 20+ years and the tension on the bobbin needs adjusting. So instead of investing in it, I treated myself to a new sewing machine!  After much research and "test driving" this Pfaff is the one!  I spent most of a day playing with it and the only thing I haven't figured out is how to get the automatic needle threader to work.  It is important cause my eyes don't see as well as they used to!  I'm sure I will underutilize all the fancy stitches/functions but I learn a little more each time I use it.

Good news is DD#3 asked me to teach her to sew before she knew I had bought a new machine.  Looks like the Kenmore will get a good home. :)

EDIT:  I updated my sales page with some new items. Go check it out!

Ooh--what a great new toy!! I've been thinking about updating my old machine (from the '70s!!) so I'll be interested to hear how yours works out, Teresa...

Lovely stitching by your daughter--how nice to have someone in your family to share your hobby with :)

Love your daughter's stitching! Congrats on your new toy, too. I got a Pfaff last year and I'm embarrassed to say how little I've used it--but I plan to! Can't wait to see what you whip up with yours.

You won't regret that choice. Pfaff machine's are awesome.

My project looks so good! Although the sky looks purple...and it's supposed to be blue :( It's so nice to see all your followers like it :)

Beautiful stitching :) Oooh... a Pfaff. Congratulations! If they had a distributor here, I probably would have gotten one instead of my Bernina. Still, I love my Bernina too ^.^

Hugs,
Veronica.
