Holding myself back!!!!

Surfing the net in the morning can sometimes be dangerous!

I've been wanting an embroidery machine for quite some time now, specially after seeing the beautiful labels that Candace creates for her quilts.

As a thank you for making the Bear Paw, my parents gifted me with a gift certificate to Hancock Fabrics;  so I browsed the website the morning.  BUT, I really don't need any fabric; I have enough projects going right now with the fabric I have.  Mind you, I did think about purchasing some yardages for future backings, but......

I followed the Sewing Machine link at the top of the page and browsed around.  There were a couple embroidery machines shown;  as you can imagine, one was a bit pricey.  But then this one caught my eye.
Brother Embroidery Machine

A google search came next to research the ins-n-outs.  This HSN page offers a video-spot.... and boy!  Those HSN'ers know how to put on the sales pitch!!   HSN Page with video

I'm SO tempted!

A brand new machine-- how exciting! A whole new obsession. There is an embroidery module available for your Bernina machine. That wouldn't require another machine, but would just be an add on to what you have. Think of all the adorable embroidered quilt blocks you could make. Personalized towels and sheets and gifts. Oh, yes, a whole new hobby is about to be born.

Browsing is definitely dangerous

Brilliant idea for another "new" hobby. How about designing quilts with electric quilter?

Amy, embroidery machines are wonderful and great for not only labels but little girls clothes. However, this looks like the little brother with possibly only the 4" hoop. Everyone I know who gets this machine first quickly wants a bigger one because they are restricted from using the larger and more plentiful designs. Do your homework to be sure you are getting what you really want: 2 machines cost a whole lot more money (ask me how I know). ;-)

I love my machine even though I don't use it to its full potential. Enjoyed seeing my name in print.
