    New toy...

    I'm going to spend the weekend petting my shiny new sewing/embroidery machine! Got the Brother 6000 that I have lusting after since it came out!

    This thiis thing will even do a 1/4 inch seam by itself...just have to guide the fabric.

    Hope I don't sound to braggy (is that even a word?). I just don't having sewing friends that would appreciate the thrill of a new sewing machine.

    I'm so happy for you . I look forward to seeing all the "lovelies" you produce with your wonderful Brother.
    I have an older model Brother. It's a wonderful machine.

      I'm happy for you, too! I remember the thrill of getting my first dream machine (a Singer Athena, their first electronic machine). May you make many gorgeous quilts with your new baby!!!! Imagine a machine that can do a 1/4" seam...awesome......Barb

        Have fun with you new machine! Do tell me if you still like it after a while and post also the negative sides of it. As I don't know this machine, and I want to buy a new sewing/quilting machine, is this one also able to quilt? Would appreciate your comments. Thanks in advance.

                  Congratulations on your new machine. I hope you enjoy it for years to come.

                  I just wish I could justify buying a new sewing machine. I am not sewing enough to justify the cost.
                  I am a "Wanna Be Quilter"! I have only made 2 baby quilts, but hope someday to make a Patriotic Themed one for my bed.

                      Oh I know the feeling of joy and excitement you are having....I bought a smaller version of yours a couple of years ago. It's like it almost does it all by itself. I have a brother Innovis 900D. I just love it compared to the old metal clunker I was using.

                      Congrats!!

                            It is not bragging....it is sharing! We love hearing the joys each other get from quilting and understand all the challenges it brings as well. Congrats! let us know how it is working after you have it a while
