First off let me thank everyone that has followed my PFAFF saga thread,I appreciate all the help.
My wife must be sick of watching me toil over that old rig,because She just came home with a new Janome JS 1008 for me.
I know it is an entry level home-owner rig,but it sure beats pounding my head against the wall over that old PFAFF until I can get it fixed,if I ever do.
I will upgrade when I get the money,but this should serve me for a bit.
I am just doing light weight for now anyways.
I am one of those perfectionists that wants INSTANT success,taking on sewing sure has taught me to have patience...as much as I hate the P word,sewing really is fun.
Wow,off on a tangent here.Back on topic...have any of you started on a home-owner machine and then graduated to a real machine. If so I am wondering what tricks you have learned along the way...such as needles,thread,tensions,etc. where you tricked your machine into thinking it is capable of more than it was designed for. I know this is a stretch,but thought I would ask.
Again,thanks for all your help. I have learned a ton on this sub-forum.
