New Sewing Machine!

I've been thinking about it for a while and I finally did it! I bought a new sewing machine! I did about 10 minutes of research and figured out that the Janome 3160QDC was the machine for me. I walked right in to my favorite place to buy machines, Ashby Sewing and asked for it and bought it all in about 10 minutes. Normally, this is not the way I make any purchase, much less a big one like this! I like doing things away from the norm sometimes I guess!

So here are my favorite things about this machine:
  • It's quiet enough that I can watch my Netflix shows on the computer and still hear the show!
  • The automatic thread cutter (how did I survive without this?) saves me a lot of time and hassle.
  • It has lots of special stitches, even about 5 different buttonholes and a grommet stitch.
  • The quilting platform (I don't know what else to call this) makes it easy to move the fabric around when sewing aprons.
  • Did I mention that it's quiet?
I am sure that I will find more reasons to love this machine as I sew with it over the years!
