Shhhh! Don’t Tell Honey

Look what followed me home from the Sewing Expo today:

Just kidding about not telling my husband; he’s actually the one who urged me to buy a new sewing machine. My last two machine purchases were from a big discount retailer. Great for the budget. Less so when it comes to sewing quality. Things started out well with my last Brother sewing machine — purchased about a year ago — but I soon found that it could be … inconsistent. Random thread tension issues that cropped up in the middle of a sewing project. Snapping bobbin threads. The complete unwillingness to sew a buttonhole on an actual garment (but willing to cover every scrap fabric with perfect buttonholes 10 times in a row).

I’ve heard great things about Janomes and the price was right, so I handed over the bank card and drove home with my very first Janome sewing machine. It’s currently on the living room floor, where I sat playing with it while watching the most recent episode of Lost with Honey. It’s so quiet, it didn’t interfere with our viewing experience even a little bit. And it sews like a dream, just so smoothly and perfectly.

Yes, I’m in love.

    Lucky girl!

    By the way, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BEAUTIFUL TEA TOWELS. I just received them in the mail. I had admired them when you originally posted them and felt like I won the lottery when I opened up your lovely package. They are way too beautiful to be used. I think I will have to frame them for my kitchen. They are so sweet. Thanks again. Will post them on my blog soon.

    I have a Janome from Sears that I bought about 4 years back, I want to upgrade, (stay with Janome) just get a better model; but knock on wood and I’ve sewn a lot, that thing has not really let me down, any issues have all been USER errors. Good luck I hope you love it!
