I just took the leap and purchased a sewing machine.

I'm having a little buyers remorse. Does anyone have experience with this? Did I make the right choice? Please help me out.  Embarrassed

Looks like fun to me Smiley Yes, embroidery machines are expensive, it's one of the drawbacks of them.

If you are a beginner & never sewn a stitch in your life? That's a bit of a big commitment, unless you are wealthy. If not, enjoy your new machine! Cheesy

I got one of these back in April.  I love it.  Take you time, take the classes and learn all the things this machine can do.  Have fun!

Hi.  I am kind of new to posting and responding, but thought I would try.  I have a project and a question.  I was hoping that all of you experts might share some of your thoughts on this.
I am going to be framing 4 different tapestries with fabric and adding tabs so that they can be hung on the wall.  This is a project I am doing for someone (not me).
Three tapestries are smaller (21x14 or so).  I bought fabric that I liked to complement each tapestry.  I have so many ideas about how to do it that I am experiencing "sewer's block".  I thought of maybe adding a border of fabric around the tapestry initially (about 2inches wide or so), maybe as a binding, but then I have to attach it to another larrger piece of fabric that will be the background.  I will add the tabs to the background piece for hanging.  Should I do this as a quilt type thing ---not binding actually but flat material.  I have never quilted so I haven't gone far with this idea.  These are all tapestries of scenes of Italy brought back from Italy.  I really don't want to screw these up.
Please give me your thoughts.  I need help.
Thanks.
Pat
