Baby Lock Grace
So, I got all set up with my back-up machine the daughter had doing upholstery with and decided, well, this isn't gonna work, I need a better back-up than this! I have gotten very spoiled with a few of the perks that I now cannot sew without! So, after a lot of checking things out on the computer to acquaint myself with prices, machines and what they have, DH grabbed a book and took me to the Sew and Vac shop where I bought my Quilter's Dream. Walked in, told the gal I wanted a lightweight, needle up/down, needle positions and drop-in bobbin. She took me over to the Grace.....I lifted it, said it's too heavy for me and I hadn't planned on spending that much. I looked around the shop and spotted a carry case with wheels that I'd surely use for retreat. heh heh heh Told her if she'd throw that in, I'd take it. DH didn't get very many pages read! If I hadn't done all that ground work, he probably would have read the whole book. LOL
Anyway, I've discovered instead of me having to move the needle to 1/4", there's an actual button to push and it does it automatically. There's a decorative stitch that does stippling and it also has that curvy line you girls were talking about. I have a couple of concerns though. I haven't been able to master the needle threader or getting more pressure on the pressure foot. All in all, I'm pretty happy with it.
I don't remember if anyone here has a Grace or not but just wanted to share what I've been up to. *Very Big Grin*
