Last month I entered my quilted jacket in one of the weekly themed contests at Quilting Gallery and won! I won a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. I took several weeks before I finally ordered something from there (its been a busy month). Well, here is what I ordered. Fons & Porters's Fussy Cut Templates, and two washable markers.
I wish I could have come home with the Singer 201, but, it is in a cabinet, and I just don't have the room for another machine in a cabinet or treadle. Well, I've been waiting for almost a month for them to price this manual. They finally priced it and called me back. Needless to say, I probably paid too much for it, but, it's now MINE! Cool! I actually have this on PDF, but, now I have an original copy, too!
I found this great "Automatic Hand Machine' at the local Salvation Army store. Isn't it cute! It really works, too. It makes a great, tiny chain stitch. The feed dogs move backwards from regular machines, but, after some practice, it was fun to sew with. The price was right, too.
