...does it take to get used to a new sewing machine?
I purchased my Janome 1600P Professional back in October, so it is not that new, but I still feel that I am getting used to it.
It is a big beast of a machine but it is powerful and it is FAST!
It has no fancy stitches, not even a zig zag. It is a work horse and I intend to work it!
I have to confess that I got a bit carried away with the speed of it while making this piece and I ending up snapping a needle that got jammed in the works. That mucked up the timing and I had to get it sorted at our local repair shop. Totally my fault and I have learnt my lesson.
So it was back to my old faithful, which for those who are interested is a Janome 4800 Memory Craft. It is at least 15 years old and has never given me any trouble which is why I was happy to go with a Janome machine again.
Thanks for reading (and thanks to Debs Nixon for her machine recommendation)
