Ok, so I've had this little beauty for oh about 9 years now. I wanted one really, really bad, I looked high and low for just the right one and.....I've NEVER used it. I'm afraid of it, why? I have not a clue. How can something so pretty and sweet and cute be sooooooo scary? I think I'll add this to my New Years Goals...learn how to not be afraid of this beautiful itty bitty Mercedes of quilting. I wanted this machine because I had these big grandiose plans for taking a lot of quilting classes and I NEEDED this machine (or at least that's what I told Mr. Ranger). Needless to say, I it's been several years since I've even taken a class. But that's gonna change this year.
