“The monetary value of any sewing, quilting or embroidery machine is irrelevant if it will allow you to create those things that bring you great joy and happiness throughout the journey to the end. Commitment to a machine is like a commitment to a car. You have to start it often, maintain it well, enjoy the drive, experience the freedom that it gives you, and it will allow you to lose yourself in the magic of being in a place of your choice. The best days as a sewer/quilter or embroiderer are those that you stand back in awe with happy tears in your eyes as you whisper to yourself– I can’t believe that I made that…. That – is the joy of sewing..!”
