Sometimes wishes do come true, even if they are not what you imagined they would be.

Oh boy, oh boy - what a beauty! I love my euro-shark even tho the sewing machine fixer lady told me that she couldn't ever get parts to fix it if it broke. I thought it was broken and was in mourning but it revived and I still love it. I figure that it won't last forever - but neither will I !

Have fun with this Deb - I find quilting such a fun challenge - most of it in my own head but that's OK too!

OK, I'm totally jealous of you. I want a Great White Shark of my own.

I really wanted an electronic machine-so I got a lower end one. I think that not having to deal with tensions and such will help the learning process. Once I master this one-(if I master this one) I'll move on to one of those jazzy computerized design your own design machines.

I'm really really excited, and I got a rolly case too so I can go to all the classes I want! Clearly, this will not be a lone endeavor.

The sewing machine is called a Shark, and it's white....and I'm always talking about swimming with the Great White Shark.

I didn't realize I would need a machine to take a quilting class....duh.

Wouln'd they let you rent or use one of their machines? I guess some places don't have enought. I stopped by an awesome quilting store last night and am going to sign up for a class. The woman there told me that "it's good that you only paid $100.00 for your euro-shark, cause it's a throwaway!". I was astounded, but she will be letting me use her Jenome and Bernina for the class, so I didn't argue.

I really do not like techno snobs. They do have machines at the school, but I am not very handy with sewing machines and think I'd do better working on one both at home and at school.

My Mom was so good at sewing, but a lousy, impatient teacher, so I am a little phobic about the machine anyway-this will be a good experience to combine art and something way outside my comfort zone.
