What are you most proud of? I did it I tuned up my sewing machine and serger and whipped up a beautiful pattern. Now I am ready for sewing all my fall and winter projects.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Listen to this video. Make notes in your machine manuals. Then next time you think your machine is just not right.....refer back to class and your manuals and give it a go. Save downtime on your machines and save $$$$.

Very nice set-up you have :) I bought an opal 670 last night. SUPER excited! I purchased the viking emerald 118 last week but upgraded to the viking Opal 670. The Emerald is awesome, but I wanted all the stitches the Opal has. My serger is still in the box....but I 'll get to it soon. Having too much fun!!! :)

Jill your machines are going to bring your hours of sewing joy.

Scheri...very nice set-up you've got there!! Now I see how you're able to crank out so many amazing projects!! :-) I'm currently on the fence about buying the 1000CPX. I use my Janome Horizon 7700QCP for most of my sewing projects (I'm embarrassed to say how many other or vintage machines sit around patiently waiting for attention lol)

Oops...silly add comment button! In addition to that I've been using the janome magnolia 7034D serger my dealer threw in when I bought the 7700. It's not enough, obviously. My question is do you thin it makes more sense to go with the 1000CPX and forget about upgrading my serger right now? I love the free-arm feature and I use my sever

Seeger so often the idea if switching more than thread to coverstitch does seem like just a lot more work for me and time wasted. How do you like the cover pro? I do sew a lot of knits. I, not happy with the price my dealer is offering either and wonder if you could suggest a reasonable range for the machine if possible?

Jill I think if you already have a serger you have mastered take a look at getting the CoverPro CPX 1000. Then you can master each of your machines and the techniques you like and use for each. When they are all set-up and waiting it makes working on a project easier.

Very nice sewing room! I have a question for you.... I live in Manitoba.....I find that the resources for sewing are quite limited here, and having things mailed from the States is expensive. How do you find your way around this? Thanks,

04/10/2013 Flag

No way around but have found sometimes cheaper even with fees than purchasing locally

04/10/2013 Flag

I find that many items are still cheaper when I order online. Including exchange, taxes, customs and duty.

There is a fabricland in Manitoba I believe...you could also check the U.S state near your province and go buy stuff there...
