I am so excited! For many months I’ve been pondering a longarm quilting machine. I’ve test-driven many different machines and at Road To California this year I finally purchased an Innova. It was delivered yesterday and I love it. Nicky and Jim from the So Sew Shop sold me my machine and they did the installation also. It’s huge! I was told that my machine needed a name…hmmm. After much thought, I’ve decided to name the machine after my great aunt Johnnie. She was a seamstress, crafter and a jack of all trades. I have many wonderful memories of the time I spent on the farm in Oklahoma crafting with her. Johnnie had her own hoard so maybe it’s genetic.
After work today I couldn’t wait to get working on the machine. Wow….I’ve a lot to learn and so much practicing to be done.
