Well I discovered something tonight that makes my heart sing. I can free motion quilt. I just didn't have the right machine. I picked up a Bernina 1630 a few years ago, that my husband found for me in a local sale paper. It was in mint condition and at $200 it was steal. When this machine was new I really lusted after it as being a young mother in no way could afford this machine. So I finally got one. I played with it for a while then put it away and continued sewing on my Janome. Which is a very nice machine however I could never free motion on it. So on a whim tonight I tried it on the Bernina and it free motions like a dreams or should I say it allows me to free motion like a dream. I still have a long way to go but now I have hope. I no longer feel free motioned challenged anymore.
The Bernina 1630 is/was a great machine. If you come across a good used one I would snap it up. I never knew what all the fuss was about Berninas I just though them overly expensive. I've heard of nothing but problems with the new ones. I do know I had to make no adjusments t the tension or anything. It looked great on both sides. Tomorrow evening I will be doing a lot more free motioning.
I wish mine was this white. It's yellowed with age. But it still works just fine!
My trees are coming along
But if I continue to do this blogging thing I'm going to have to invested in a decent digital camera, the phone just isn't getting it.
Well getting late
