I actually have some money coming to me from Coles (my brother bought me a book that I already have). So I'm trying to decide between a how to quilt book and a cook book...humm...decisions decisions.
Yep! What I mean by that, is do you have a machine that you can sit down in front of & know WHY it does what it does, like when you see a bad stitch, do you know how far you can adjust it to fix it? Or why did it just break that needle? If you DON'T know that machine, you'll just waste time trying to figure out what is going wrong all the time. Not every machine is the same, obviously. And when you have a full blanket's worth of material stuffed up under it, it helps to have it running properly, because it's a real pain in the arse to drag all that material out to fix something, then start over. When that happens to you, you'll know exactly what I mean..
