QuiltCon. Here’s Mix and Mingle, a challenge quilt of mine that showed at
This machine earns my seal of approval. Previously, I sewed on a Janome that was marketed as a home décor machine. I had inherited it from my aunt, and it worked just fine. Pushing a quilt through it was rough going, though. I wanted a machine with a larger throat and something on which I could practice free-motion quilting.
|Me and the Other Man.|
If you’re in the market for a new machine, here’s what you should know about the 1600:
- It’s an industrial machine and only straight-stitches.
- There are almost 9 inches to the right of the needle
- It is crazy fast, sewing up to 1,600 stitches per minute. You can ratchet that down, however, by adjusting the speed dial.
- The tension on this machine is a dream. I’ve never had eyelashes with my free-motion quilting or issues when I use different top and bottom thread colors.
- It comes with minimal bells and whistles, including a thread cutter, needle threader, and knee lift.
The pageant rules are simple:
