Hi Melissa. I see you recently had a birthday and I don't remember if I got by to say Happy Birthday. Whatever, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! even if it is late. I do hope you enjoyed your day. About selling your Jenome, I am rather new to this site so I don't know if there are any rules or not. I might be interested in it. If you would, email me and tell me about it - age, how much use did it get, what all it does, shape it is in, price, etc. email@example.com
Love and Hugs, Dee
Hi Melissa -- try this link: http://www.thecolorfulworldofsewing.com/p-196-free-motion-quilting-darning-foot-low-shank.aspx. They have a PLETHORA of presser feet for all models. I found a set of feet, including a walking foot, for lots less than buying them individually. Prices are pretty reasonable, too, I think.
Hi Melissa, I have a Memory Craft 9500 that is a used machine in perfect condition except a spot on the handle and it was purchased in England so it uses an adaptor that is included it is at $500.00 plus shipping, I also have a Memory Craft 10001 that is an embroidery machine that is listed for $4000.00 but I will sell it for $2500.00 plus shipping, It is a NEW machine and also has some extra patterns upon it that I put on for a class and never removed. If your interested please let me know and I will find out the cost of shipping to you.
Melissa, I realize you know nothing about me, I would like to share something with you. I have sold different sewing machines, I am well aware of all the bells and whisles that they have. I told customers to bring in something they were doing and sew on the machine alone. That way they know how it works not set and watch a trained person put the machine through its paces. Also the most important is who is going to take care of the machine when it needs cleaned?, oiled?, and how long will you be without your machine for this to be done? Is it done onsite or sent off to someone? Oh and try more than an Viking, they have changed alot in the past 10 years, different company owners make different machines. The company that owned Viking 10 or more years ago does NOT own them now and they are NOT the same machine. Look into a Pfaff and a Janome machine also they are wonderful and do awesome embroidery too and a lot easier to understand how to run them. Just saying my opinion/ suggestion.
Hi! Just saw your message in Totally Totes - I LOVE making bags, it is super addicting! For an easy start, I suggest the Charm Party Tote pattern by Quilts Illustrated - I find the Quilts Illustrated Patterns to be VERY well written and easy to understand. The Charm tote is very basic - get a charm pack, sew 20 squares together for a front, 20 for the back, and it only takes a yard of fabric for lining and handles. There are a few pockets, but those are rather easy too, because she explains them well & has nice illustrations for how things go together.
