My trip to the AQC was a success!

Hi Everyone :)

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 
to check on Frankie and Dee, creations made by the ever fabulous Jodie (Ric Rac)
and make sure they were behaving themselves ;D

All in all it was a good day :)
