I have a new sewing machine and I love it. it does so much more than my other one, which is a perfectly good machine I might add. I suppose it’s a little like having a car with wind up windows and upgrading to electric windows and other refinements, the car still only gets you from a to b but it is a nicer experience. The same with my machine. It has great things like a thread cutter, needle threader, automatic buttonhole,needle up/down switch along with lots of things I haven’t even tried yet. It is a #Husqvana Opal 690q and I love it. I am like a kid with a new toy! I have started to make a top and will let you see the final version soon.
