WOW! How amazing is he! I can't even free motion my darning evenly.
I notice he is using the best machine in the world, a JUKI! Elna Xquisite machines and Bernina Sergers are made by Juki.

Totally amazing! I would love to sit and watch him for few days just to see if everything always runs that smoothly and try to get a few pointers from an expert! I have sewn through my thunb, nail and all with a high speed comercial unit many yrs ago. It happened so fast that I did not even feel any pain when it happened. It was very sore/tender for about a week. When asked if I needed to go the Emergency Room, I told them no!!! I did not want any other needles sticking in me!!!!!!!! I was not much more than a teeneger when it happened and I have been more than careful all these yrs since! Me and a few more were visiting a shirt factory in Swainsboro, Ga. I thought I would be fine since I had been sewing for so many yrs(even then). My Dad's Mom (granny) was a self taught seemtress and I learned everything I know about sewing from her. She started me off when I was 14 or 15(maybe younger) and I have had a love for all of the crafts she taught me since then. In fact, I learned how to cook from her also although I will never be as good as she was with any of the crafts she taught me! She was a tiny little thing with a God given talent to do any kinds of crafts and everything she tried came out perfect! Even after I got married, I would call my granny when I needed any kind of instructions..sewing, embroidery, braided wool rugs, and even cooking. One thing she nor my lifetime best friend could ever teach me was to crochet. They decided I was a hopelees cause! I will be 65 in Dec and I still do not know how!

WHEW! I sat staring with mouth open! He is good!! Fascinating to watch. The new Janome Horizon 12000 has the knee lifter that changes the width of your zigzag like that.
Definitely worth watching! Thanks.

Thanks I went to the site and looked at some of his custom work. "Drop jaw gorgeous". Check out the Inventory - Women's Suits on the last jacket $3,500.

That is scary. I think my fingers would not be save. He is awfully close to the needle. Very impressive.

Wow, he has certainly done that before!! Must have taken years of practice. I love the knee handle to vary the width, but boy, what speed.

Wow thats done with a juki industrial machine. They sew so fast I'd never want to use one. Sold them at a shop I workes at and they wanted me to put zippers in car hart coveralls. NO WAY!!!. That is one machine that intimadated me. LOL This guy is great and brave..

facinating to watch-makes you want to give it a go-but tell me..was I the only one cringing just a little at seeing his fingertips that close to the needle with no foot at that fast speed lol.

I have a friend who lives near and does freemotion embroidery. Not that fast though, I don't think!
Her work is amazing She does that as a change/relief from sewing dog collars etc that we both do :)
