I love love love to sew and always will.
A few months ago, my Mamo graciously purchased an older sewing machine that had never been out of its box. I was thrilled. I am so so so thankful to have my own machine.
My sisters like to sew on our little Janome. It's perfect for them because it doesn't go very fast even when you push the pedal the whole way down and doesn't have many buttons or whistles.
My NASCAR machine goes very fast, which is really nice. I also know how to work better with the older machines since they are what I learned on. Mine has a very similar make up to the one that my Mamo uses.
Here are a few pictures of some of the parts of my pretty machine.
