QofTD 08/14/12 Which Machine?
Many of us have multiple sewing machines. Assuming good tension-a straight stitch is a straight stitch :)
What makes you choose to sew on one machine, such as Featherweight, over one of your other machines?
For me, I forced myself to sew for one year on the new Pfaff to learn how it worked and generally bond with it. It has features I still forget to use, and using the reverse/backstitch for just a few stitches is still baffling -it's the operator. I use that machine as my primary machine. I pull out the Featherweight occasionally when I have easy piecing just to keep the old gal moving. If I had room to have more than one machine set up all the time, I would definitely use it more.
Just like using the same ruler thru out the project, I want to use the same machine within the same areas of the quilt for consistency.
What makes you choose which machine on any given day or project?
