I have been considering a new machine for quite a while and finally busted out today! My main requirements were the larger sewing area and the ability to FMQ, other than that I really didn't want alot of bells and whistles. TaDaaaa!
So I am still on the lower end of the learning curve, but after a couple of hours of frustration I did actually FMQ for my first time... poof!
I see many hot pads in the near future, practice, practice, practice.
