My machine is here! If only I had some free time to play with it! It came on Tuesday, just as expected and it has been staring at me ever since. I finally opened it up, but I have still yet to try it. I’m glad it came with so many accessories.I wasn’t really sure what kind of things would be included. I also got some extra bobbins while I was at it. I plan on going over the owner’s manual in the next few days… may depend on how much studying I get in before next Tuesdays test. (I’m a rule-book-kind-of-girl, and I always have been. Often considered an annoying trait to many.)
I did, however, go on a little shopping spree to buy a few things I might need to get started. Hopefully I got enough to get me started. A huge thank you again to creative pixie for the advice on some needed supplies. I’m including a picture so that if I’m missing something necessary you can let me know. In case the picture isn’t too clear Here is a list of what I purchased: some pins, a pincushion (that I definitely will want to replace, but it came with one of those beginner sewing kits), a few thread varieties, dressmaker’s shears, measuring tape, transparent ruler, fabric pens, chalk pencil, needle threader, seam gauge, seam ripper, and a tracing wheel and wax-free tracing paper than came with the beginner kit. I also purchases some fabric. First time on my own. Did I miss anything?
Still felt a little awkward but I am immensely grateful to my sister-in-law for taking me the first time because I didn’t feel like as much of an idiot doing it on my own this time. A woman actually asked me some advice on a project she was working on, hoping for some insight. Upon confessing I was only at the beginning of classes she was so tickled and wished me lots of luck while telling me how much fun I will have. Only advice she gave me: Start saving your money now.
Well… That’s all I have so far. I was hoping I’d have had time to work on something by now but in due time I guess. My goal is to post something from here on out at least every Monday. If I miss one, feel free to call me out! 😛
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter… if you celebrate it. If not, have a great weekend. 😉
