My new baby

I bought myself a new (to me) sewing machine!  It’s a Janome 1600P DB.  Here it is next to my Brother :


It’s a monster next to that cute lil Brother, isn’t it?  LOTS more throat space, 9 inches to be exact.  My Brother is a great little machine, I’ve had it for 5 or 6 years and it has been much loved and very heavily used.  My one and only complaint about it is that at 5 inches, the throat is too small.   So when I came across the opportunity to buy this used Janome from a friend, I jumped at it!  It’s like a freight train.  No bells and whistles, just a heavy-duty straight stitch machine that sews at about 137 miles per hour.  It came with lots of extra bobbins, needles, and feet, 2 of which are quilting feet.  Yippee!  I’ve already started practicing my free-motion quilting, which I had given up on doing with the Brother!   All that space is so nice…..
