The machine is your basic Singer-- pretty noisy, mechanical, very small, and not too powerful. I've loved sewing on it and have appreciated all the sewing karma my mom left behind (thanks, Mom!). Unfortunately, I've outgrown the machine. It doesn't do what I want to do anymore, and it usually needs service after I make it try. So, when it began screeching very loudly during quilting on Aunt Stephanie's quilt, I decided it was time to move on.
Katie has been after me to pick out a new machine for a while. She thought it would make a great Christmas present.
Well, I picked one out that I thought would make a great right-this-second present. Be pleased to meet my very first sewing machine, called Daniel V.
As you can see, it's the Brother Innov-is 40, Project Runway Edition. I didn't buy it because it's the Project Runway Edition, but that is why I named it Daniel V.
