Memory Craft 6600 Professional

I am happy to introduce my newest acquisition. I have long coveted this machine since first seeing it on numerous sewing & quilting blogs. Everyone raved about it and the things it can do. I thought that I would not get to own one due to the cost, but a recent small winfall and a subsequent Christmas sale saw me ordering one.
I had my SIL pick it up from my preferred dealer, approx. 700km's away last week and she returned home with it yesterday. The Bloke gave me a hand to unpack it this morning and I am amazed.
It is a beauty.
But until I study the manual I will not touch it, as I am thinking that the super fast speed might see me sewing my fingers and that is not something I want. I am alergic to pain.
It is heavier at 12 kg than my previous machines so my muscles will get a work out.
I am still trying to finish quilts that need to be completed for xmas as they are gifts. Tablerunners, and napkins also need to be started.
I do it all the time leave things to the last minute, then work like a mad thing getting things done. Crazy I tell you.
So until I have some more news to tell you including pictures will say bye for now.

  1. Great news. Nothing like "indulging" in one's wishes and dreams! I'm looking forward to seeing some examples of your wonderful creations.
