Okay, I am DONE sewing for a few days. The craft show is tomorrow and I’ll be there to set up bright and early at 6:30 am. This tote is made out of fabric that is already pieced – from Moda for a whopping $12.50 a yard. Boy, I need to start getting this stuff wholesale! If this one doesn’t sell, I’m keeping it. I don’t consider myself much of a country gal, but I sure do like this look.
On a different note, now that I have some more time, I’m going to be in the market for a new sewing machine. I don’t want to break the bank, but I want one that will last me a good long time. My current machine is a Kenmore (it was a gift – probably around $150), but while it is a good machine, it doesn’t do thick layers well. So what do you ladies sew with? And how do you like your machines? My mom-in-law has a Pfaff, and after 30 years it still sews fabulously, but I think they’ve been bought out. I don’t think I want an embroidery machine, but a computerized one would be nice. I don’t even really know what I’m talking about. Is Viking all it’s cracked up to be? What about Janome? I’ve heard Bernina makes nice machines, but that if you ever buy any extra presser feet or accessories, they are VERY expensive. Any thoughts?
