My sweet in-laws had gotten me a new sewing machine. I had no words! It's a Brother CS6000i. I've already taken to calling it the "CSI." Like the tv show. ;)
So naturally, I went and sewed some things, including these nightgowns that you may recognize!
And played and played with all the way-cool bells and whistles on this thing:
Check out all the stitches...
And do you know what this is, and why it's so awesome?
|That would be a drop-in bobbin. Great for when I teach Abs how to use the machine - really use it. But the best part? YOU CAN SEE WHEN YOU'RE ABOUT TO RUN OUT OF THREAD DOWN THERE! Can I get a whoop-whoop? Why don't they ALL have this?|
Three speeds...I of course love the fastest one (which is really fast), while I can set it to the slowest one (which is really slow!) for Abby. She's becoming quite the little sew...er. Sewist. Seamstress.
AND, it comes with one of these things for when you're doing big projects. I'm guessing it would be handy for quilters, which I am not. Yet.
Snowy likes it too. She's like, "hmm, that looks like a new machine." Actually, it's probably more like, "mmm, thread. I want some."
|Yes, our mostly black cat is named Snowy. Please don't ask me to explain.|
So, in short, the CSI is a welcome addition to my sewing room! Thanks, Bonnie! :)
