New Threads to be Sewn

Girl meets quilt shop

Likes Janome machines ALOT

DROOLS,

AND drools

Goes home excited and then not so much--Hello-- cha-ching!

Venture's to Facebook (well who doesn't)

Sees message from new friend whom happens to work at that quilt shop

She says a friend of hers is selling her Janome MC6500P for $500 AM I interested?

Interested doesn't describe her feelings--are YOU SERIOUS!!!

Girl thinks: "NO I can't possibly do that. The price is awesome.  Online they are $1200.00 on SALE.  The hubs won't buy into it. Why is this new friend from the shop torturing me like this!!! 

Well maybe I can swing it."

Just maybe...

Girl tells hubs and a few minutes go by (tick tock,tick tock),
Hubs ACCEPTS and says go ahead that's one you can't pass up (AHHHH in tune of course)

Girl hangs up phone and does a few giggles (or more, who's counting), jumps up and down and around in circles

Girl's son looks at her thinking "What the heck momma?"

Girl calls shop to find this "friend" that is selling the machine (BTW, this machine is the very 1st one I was eying up originally)

Girl picks up machine NEXT day and fell head over heels---watch out hubs!!

Lucky me
 
Blessed me!
(Don't worry hubs you are still my one true love.)
 
Janie (clearing throat) Janome is sooooo puuuurrrrty and functional to me:) 


Happy sewing ya'll,
 
Sara

Congratulations, Sara! That is so awesome!! I just got a new Juki, and absolutely love it - I hear the Janome is very similar. Just imagine all the great stuff you're going to create on it!!

Hi Sara! Congrats on your new Janome. I hope to have one someday soon. For now it's a cheapie, but adequate Kenmore. :) Love your music!

Lucky, lucky girl! Enjoy that new machine! I was looking to buy a Janome but decided on the Juki instead. I think they're both great machines.
