I finally found one, you many already have one and never use it for embroidery. For me I just couldn't find one at a price I was willing to pay for one.

I know you are wondering ... a Baby Monitor for $10.00 .
I now can leave my sewing room ( lucky to have one ) and go off to another place and listen. If you are like me , worrying something is going to wrong , now I can I just listen to the sound of a gentle heart beat, until I hear the sound that something is wrong , it can be a grind , a squeak now I can jump to action to fix the problem.
So who else uses one? So far I am loving it!

You all are so nice about describing your temperamental machines--mine is the same way! But I don't think I'm as nice about it--my husband and I both say that "it wants to be fondled and caressed" in order to sew right. I thought mine was the only one like that! Good to know I'm not crazy, or at least I'm not alone in my craziness!!

Over the last 2 years I have bought two. They are being used for what they are intended for, monitoring my two precious grandsons. I have thought about one for my Brother (machine) but maybe when they are no longer needed for the boys I might get them back. Who knows. Hugs Marg

Great idea ,wish they were around when we breed puppies.

Yes , I have heard of this ,but my baby knows if I leave her unattended! I may take a bathroom break , but nothing more. Kay

What a clever idea.

by sandralane 04 Oct 2015

Never thought to use one in my sewing room, but of course it makes good sense. My daughter-in-law uses one for my grandson, never had them in my day. I think this is be a good idea of yours, going to try it. Thank you for sharing this with us. Sandra.

What a great idea! I had never thought of that!

by Leaha 04 Oct 2015

I have one and do use it. I thought every one else did too, silly me. I also talk to my machine and tell her what a good job she is doing, etc. Flattery will get you anywhere, ya know. I don't take jaunts to far away, but it gives me piece of mind! lo

Pretty smart.

I have one of those machines that knows the second you turn your back. My DH caught me sneaking to the laundry room once and when I told him my machine knew when I was gone, he thought I was nuts, until, sure enough it started to squawk. Now he just shakes his head in wonder and "babysits" if I have to leave.

Mine does this also...however I tell it whenever I turn my back...Okay baby I'm right here, you be a good girl, I see you are doing such a fantastic job! It seems to help lol.

I tried that. I am sure I heard it snicker. LOL

You guys make me laugh. I just could see this machine chuckle.

by lbrow 04 Oct 2015

I think it's great you can do this. At my age I simply can not move fast enough if something goes wrong and I'm not right there with it. Things can happen so fast and with only one machine and limited funds I'm afraid to leave it alone./Lillian

by elemausi 04 Oct 2015

Like your idea but I think as Angie, better I am in the same room as my machine.

by laffma1 04 Oct 2015

It's a great idea and would surely allow more multitasking throughout the day. But my machine is old and wise, and knows when I turn my back on her or look away to do something else for too long. I generally need stay close enough to intervene quickly at the first sound out of trouble.

Just let her 'hear' your voice and she will be fine! ;~)

Now that is an idea I hadn't thought of so thanks

by crafter2243 Moderator 04 Oct 2015

My machine is more temperamental and acts up the moment I leave the room.Ha, ha. Also I think I would brake my neck rushing up the stairs after hearing something unusual. Sorry no Baby monitor for me. I have to be in the same room

Me too. I want to be able to push that stop button and fix what is wrong immediately. When I'm embroidering or crafting I would rather stop and come back to it when I can than let it continue without me.

by sbott54 04 Oct 2015

How wonderful an idea! I'm always having to leave mine when the dogs demand attention or cooking supper and such. I would never have thought of a baby monitor for my precious EM. Thanks!
