In a very happy place. Today I picked up my new Dream Machine, will be able to do so much more now with the large hoops. Next week I will be taking delivery of a Nolting Long Arm Quilting machine. Everything I'd wished for for the past 3yrs is finally happening. Also on Saturday we pick up a new Holden Astra, isn't life great.

They are a Sewing/Embroidery machine with hoops 9x14 down to 4x4 and a long arm quilting machine to make finishing quilts a bit easier. The Astra is a car

Congratulations! I just got the Brother Dream Machine 2 and am amazed at all it can do. I am having so much fun playing with my new toy. It is very easy to sit right down and start sewing or embroidering. I am truly in love with this machine. It definitely lives up to its name. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I am enjoying mine. It is more than I ever dreamed for. Hugs, Barba

Amazing. Where to start. Sooooo many new toys to have fun with. Whoever said it was the boys whose toys get bigger as they get older doesn't know any seamstresses. Gotta love our machines! Congratulations on all your new machines! Debbie

Wow so many awesome toys to play with. Congratulations. I wasn't sure what a Holden Astra is. I guess from reading Chris's post that it is a car.

Congratulations Marian. I'm so happy you got the new Brother dream machine and I'm assuming you have a dealer close by you down in Sydney. Where will you be placing the long arm quilter as I know they take up quite a bit of room? Must be the time for buying new cars as we just bought a new BMW last weekend ourselves. Once Trev retires we will be cutting back to one car, hopefully in 3 years. Love Chris

No never cut back to one car. If one is in the shop ,you still have wheels. What if you want to go to two different places at the same time. I look at it as a back up embroidery machine. Kay

marianb by marianb 26 May 2017

Thanks Chris I have a Hobby Sew at Blacktown about 15mins away, at the moment the quilter will be in the garage next to the dart board until I either convince Kevin to build me another room or get himself a larger shed.. lol not sure how's going to win this one..

So nice to hear you are happy, i wish you many hours of wonderful trouble free embroidery with your new machine. Larger hoops are super, i have had my Janome 500e with larger hoops now for over twelve months i just love to be able to multiply designs in one hooping. ENJOY creating new things. Sandra.

I'm not sure where to start they are a bit different from a Janome embroidery and domestic sewing machines..
