    I am so lucky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know if this is the appropriate place for this but here goes. I have the absolute BEST HUSBAND in the whole world. We are struggling through a terrible emotional family issue right now and I am having such trouble dealing with it. My DH (Dear Husband) took me out today and bought me a new sewing machine which by the way is sooo Not in our budget!!!! A Janome Memory Craft 6600. Please girls tell me that it is a Great Machine!!! My sewing room is my retreat from the world and I cannot wait to start using it. My closest friends are not into quilting so I am sharing it with you...my new friends. THANKS FOR LISTENING!!! Inspired...ps...my real name is Val

    Val, I think anywhere is a great place for this news! Congrats on the new machine (I don't know anything about it...sorry) and what a wonderful hubby to support your hobby and obviously he must be a great support through family issues you are facing. I know what you mean about your sewing room being a retreat, that's for sure. Keep us updated on how you like your new machine.

      Hi Val, I don't know anything about your machine, but it certainly sounds like your husband is the best for getting it for you. I am a hand quilter myself. Enjoy and let us know how you like it.

      Take care

                  Congratulations Val!!! I don't know much about this machine but Jenny drives one of the Janomes too. If it's good enough for her it would be good enough for me. I wish I could get one. Hugs, Jan L

                    Val, a great big welcome to the quilt-y world. You will love your time spent here and troubles will fly out the window when you are sitting in front of your new machine making pretties.

                    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                      Well done Val! Your husband sounds like a special fella. I think that there are quite a few special guys belonging to your quilty sisters here at MSQC as well. I am happy for you! Don't know nuthin' 'bout Janome, but everything I have heard is good.

                        I'm afraid I don't know anything about Janome's, but I hear they are good machine.

                        May your troubles disappear quickly so you may fully enjoy your machine.

                          Dear Val, Welcome!! Your dear husband and a Janome - LOVE it - know that you can make many, many pretties (like Blondie says!) with your machine - I have quilted myself through many hard times. Know that you have found the best quilting place in the world with MSQC - fabulous quilty ladies (and some men too), very knowledgeable people and people who have heart. We welcome pictures of your creations!

                              Val---that is the machine that I own and use! Love it! The accuquilt foot is awesome. You will enjoy learning all the fancy stitches and will be turning out lovely objects soon. I so understand the retreat option on your sewing room. ....if only the rest of the family did then I would enjoy it more! Had this machine a little over a year and no regrets. Enjoy! SuzyQue
