I know Christmas is over, but I forgot to show what I got!!!
What could be under here?
It's the Janome 5812! I've used the same sewing machine that my parents bought me in high school- a sturdy little Bernette, that was already used when I got it. But, this year for Christmas, Mom and Dad surprised me with a new Janome. It's lighter than the Bernette, but all my presser feet are interchangeable which I was excited about, and it should top stitch much nicer than my old machine. I'm still keeping my old machine because I'm sentimental and I figured it would be handy if I am ever without a machine for a while. (I have to drive an hour to get my machine tuned up and then wait a few days and drive an hour to pick it up.)
It's so nice having a new machine! It's not computerized but it does everything my old machine did and then some, so I'm pretty happy.
