OMG!

Here she is! My new Brother 1034d. I know how I’m going to spend the remainder of my weekend….
New brother 1034d
Any advice welcome!
On a less expensive note, here are this weekend’s thrift finds. Two sheets for muslins, a groovy (and possibly awful) 70s pattern, bemberg rayon in gray, tracing paper, and a couple of yards of blue fabric that I’m a little on the fence about. All for 10 bucks!

In other news that is only exciting to me: summer holiday plans are solidified! 
Middle Fork of the Salmon

Heaven willing and the creek don’t rise (or fall), I’ll be spending a week on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, alternating between lounging on a raft with a beer in my hand and trying not to die in the rapids. A friend of a relative of a friend somehow scored a much coveted (in the boating community) permit and I was lucky enough to get invited along. This is a once in a lifetime trip (though with any luck, I’ll be able to repeat the feat). Preparing gear sewing plans as we speak!

  1. You will love your Brother. I got a Janome last year. Check out the great videos on YouTube. And do lots of testing.
    I got a free instruction class from where I bought mine. It was great. I'm hoping to take some Craftsy classes to learn even more.
    Have fun!

  2. I have this exact same serger, and I love it! I've done a lot of testing and playing around with it, so if you have any questions, let me know! 🙂 It took me a looong time to get the tension settings right for the rolled hem, so I can tell you what I came up with for that if it's helpful.
