|This is the box!|
|This is the box, once opened, from the top.|
|The top of the machine from inside the box. Can you see the carrying handle? This machine weighs in at approximately 28 pounds. This is no lightweight machine. But it wasn't impossibly heavy either. What a way to get your weight lifting in, right?!|
|The Triumph from the front. Isn't she beautiful?|
|This is the Madeira thread kit I received as a bonus. It contains 4 spools of Aerolock Serger thread, 8 spools of Mini King Aeroflock thread, 4 spools, Cotona 4 weight thread, and 4 spools Decora 12 weight thread.|
I'm super excited to begin learning how to use this machine. I actually used this machine while I was taking the Sue Green-Baker 3 Day Serge-a-Thon, so we should all ready be friends.
What do you do when you have a new machine? Do you jump right in with a project or do you go step by step through the manual? I've done samples while in class. As we joked in the class, "for demonstration purposes." I'd really like to begin on a project. Stay tune for that project!
True confessions: I was in a rush to make a costume and felt more comfortable with the Babylock Imagine, so I pulled her out. We, Imagine and I, whipped up two Merida costumes from Disney’s Brave in an afternoon, using a basic four thread overlock stitch.
Have you ever done this? You have a brand-spankin' new machine that has all the bells and whistles (okay, at least more bells and whistles than your current machine) and pull out your trusty ol' machine to do a project? What have you done?
