This Christmas I was so thrilled to get a sewing machine from my parents. I didn't want a machine what would overwhelm me with lots of bells and whistles, and this Janome has everything I need and is easy to use and thread. They purchased it from this great company Heuer's Sewing. Major bonus is that they do all of their repairs in shop, rather than sending them away.
I cut an opening on the top for the handle, on the side for the power cord, and added a pocket to the front for the manual. A lot of topstitching was involved for these steps, which I am not so good at. Pretty dece for a first project!
