My New Machine

It seems like nearly everyone was disappointed with Amazon Prime Day. Weird BBQ parts and foam exercise rollers aren’t everyone’s idea of a hot deal, but there were some great prices on things that, well, we may not have needed… but, you know how it goes. I had my eye on a pretty Singer sewing machine that went on sale at 8am. I missed it, though, since I needed to get my little guy ready for camp.

It was all for the best.

At 5pm a great sewing/embroidery machine came up at a super price and after being stuck on the waiting list for over 30 minutes, I managed to buy one! I am now the proud owner of a Brother LB6810, an entry level embroidery machine! Yay!!!

I’ve messed around with it a little bit, but it has been slow going since I need embroidery thread (which I had no idea was different than sewing thread), stabilizer, cool designs to stitch, and some courage to try it out. I’ve got lots of great ideas though!

This was my first test–stitching two different designs together and aligning them nicely. I think I did a good job, but there is a bit of puckering under the crown. I’m sure I will get better with practice.

Do any of you have an embroidery machine? Do you have any advice you can offer?
