new sewing machine

I mentioned in last week's tea cosy post that my Singer machine was ready for retirement.

It was a good machine, and I've been sewing on it for 22 years...

But the uneven stitches, jamming bobbin, and general lack of precision have become too frustrating to deal with, and my projects just haven't been up to par.

So, I'm now the proud owner of this Janome DC 2010 machine...

I was really resisting an electronic machine, but once I sewed on it, it was obvious that I just had to embrace it!

I managed to talk them into giving me $50 off and free lessons :)

There's another whimsical tea cosy in my Etsy Shop!
