Best sewing $$ I've spent yet is my Janome horizon 7700 with the built in Accu feed. Puts walking feet to shame. But it did cost (just a little) more than $10.

Dang, I was a couple weeks too late in meeting you in Arkansas this past winter... My hubby was the other AS in the campground. I remember him mentioning that he met you.

I love books and magazines for ideas... Just wish I had a way to store them while I am on the road.

Speaking of storage, I keep my notions in an Art Bin box. As for my stash, I buy as needed.

I haven't ventured into clothing. I started back sewing (after HS home ec 30 years ago) by making a new interior to replace my ocean breeze stuff. I was getting tired of the color blue. I created two interior schemes so far.

...and the other is what I call Gyspy...
(hope the photos work)

I have a third interior coming using a cute Michael Miller Vintage Trailer/gnome grouping.

I want to use a good marine vinyl for cushions next. Will stay cleaner longer... but I'll need to get a really heavy duty machine for that.

Lois I bet your 7700 would sew that vinyl. I haven't found anything yet that mine won't sew easily. I'm going to try some pleather on it soon.

I see that many of you have a Janome Jem for light portable travel machines. I found the home page for this company, but I've been able to find no information on cost. Any idea of price of a new Jem travel machine and how to order one? Thanks, ~G

I called my local sewing center and got a price for the Jem Platnuim 760 of 599. and the gold jem 299. I am going to look at them this afternoon. (although hubby thinks I'm nuts, since I haven't been sewing at home lately) My home machine is a Janomoe 9000, and I love it. Susan

Lemme know how it works. I have leather needles, teflon, and roller feet, just didn't know if it would be too heavy on the motor.

Need to post some more projects on here guys! Im working on a scrappy Christmas Tree Skirt (quilt) right now, a great big one because every tree skirt I have ever seen is way too small. Will post pics as I go.

Took a look at the Gem's, the price they told me over the phone included 100 for a 3 yr extended warranty, free classes and a 20% store discount. So the platnuim was 499 and the anniversary model 399 without the added products. Also all of the feet for my 9000 can be used on the gem. Am still trying to convince RustyRivet, this is a needed item. Susan

Here's another

Had to downsize the pics so I didn't run out of available space to post Airstream pics!

Airstreams aren't the only thing you can polish! This is a Singer Featherweight that is completely polished. My wife also has one painted candy apple red and has the factory table.
