Well, I lied . . .

There were two stand alone embroidery machines in town. I bought one. I have to go to a Girls Night gig so I'll let you know more tomorrow. :) This is my first one. Not bad eh?

Knew you'd take the bait! Enjoy yourself, and don't hesitate to post any questions, there is a little bit of a learning curve! Hope you had and enjoyable girls' night!

Isn't it fun. Wait till you do an applique file or make a little toy for your girls. Enjoy.

You'll have fun learning to machine embroider. It opens up a lot of possibilities for creativity.

Congrats on the new machine and the sun's return! The shirt dress looks great and worth the annoyance of 10 buttons.

It looks great.
What machine did you end up buying?

Congrats on the embroidery machine. If I gave in to that desire, I probably wouldn't spend money on food! Only fabric and embroidery thread! Have fun with it.
