Since I bought my Juki, I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know her, getting to know all about her! I love being able to sew that “perfect” stitch. But a big reason for wanting this machine is for free motion.
I have had a time with free motion before meeting Juki. When I went to test drive this machine, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to free motion. One of the sales staff at the shop commented that I was really good at it. What?? I could never get my stitches right, but with the Juki, it’s so much easier. Maybe all of my practice has paid off, or maybe it’s the machine!!
I’ve taken a couple of online free motion classes and one of the instructors said to really feel comfortable with free motion you need to go through 30 bobbins!! I’ve only gone through 3 so far.
Meanwhile, I’m also working on a couple of my dyed rope bowls on my old Elna.
So I dyed more rope yesterday. Now waiting for it to dry before I can sew another one.
I really love my studio redo, but I didn’t take in account Ace’s ability to get on the window ledge so he gets back and forth in the window walking over my table. And then I caught him laying on it the other day. We had a talk about this, but he wasn’t listening.
Just a few minutes ago I found him in the laundry room – a good place to watch what’s going on outside.
My new online class, Easy Silk Dyeing, will be opening next week. It’s been fun putting it together.
