Ah yes, I got me a fancy new machine.
I really like the pfaff brand mainly because my ole select 4.0 has been really good to me. So I was talking to my hubby when this opportunity came up to buy a new machine that I would “pop” on it.
When I first got into the sewing hobby, I spent around $300 on a machine. I didn’t want to invest a ton of money into a machine because what if I was fickle about sewing (meaning what if I ended up sewing for a time and giving up on it). Then spending $300 isn’t really that bad of an investment.
As the years pass and I get better and better at sewing, I thought I should get a better machine. Then Mrs Lee posted about her new purchase and I just got down right jealous ya know? So I went shopping. . more like test driving and I knew the upgrade to my Select 4.0 was a Quilt Expression 4.0.
And I got it Wednesday. . . but if you’ve always sewn on a mechanic machine and then upgrade to a computerized one. . . it’s like I’ve been driving a manual transmission car and then along comes an automatic. “Wait, where the hell is the clutch!”
I started pouring over the manual last night. . .and I’ve check the internet a gazillion times. .
Time to cut fabric and see how this puppy handles things.
There’s a couple hiccups with the machine and I’ll have to do more research on fixing it but overall I am happy with it, but then I’ve only had like 1 hour of sewing time on the thing.
