I meant to post this last week as that is when I attended the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne...But our home internet decided to die and be annoying until now, so sorry its a little late :)
I had a VERY successful day. My aim for the day was to try out a bunch of different sewing machines (which I did), and choose one to purchase - as you all know I have been having nothing but issues with my current machine (which by the way has come back from the doctor and is working again), so hubby and I decided it was time for a new machine that was right for the job (ie: making bags!). I didn't think I would be purchasing on the spot - but that is what ended up happening!
I bought a JUKI TL-98, and I am so happy I did! It is a great machine and I have pretty much used it whether the task is big or small, everyday since I picked it up! Apparently purchasing a new machine is good for my sewjo ;P
At the Juki stand I spent some time talking to Molli Sparkles and trying out the Juki
I also purchased a few other small items...
Some cute buttons from the crafty squirrel,
Some pretty fabric from Gail B patchwork,
and I made sure to stop past Millrose and Quilting Gallery
and make sure they were behaving themselves ;D
All in all it was a good day :)
