I have a new friend I would like to introduce you to.
Meet Debbie, my new Husqvarna Viking Emerald sewing machine. She is simple and straightforward, and she didn’t cost a lot like the other gals I wanted to bring home with me.
She’s not too different from my previous sewing machine, just more heavy-duty and smoother. She sews faster, she can wind a tighter bobbin, she has a working automatic needle threader, she doesn’t skip stitches (like my old machine did), she sews a better 1/4″ seam, and she can stop with her needle in the down position. I just got a free motion foot for her so now we can practice our quilting together.
She helped me make this together, just a fun little project for practice.
Speaking of friends, did you see the new Friendship Bag Swap over at Quilting Gallery?
I think this is such a sweet sentiment, and Rachel provided a wonderful tutorial to make for your partner (or you can make your own). I fell in love with that little friendship bag as soon as I saw it. I am so excited for this swap!

Welcome Debbie! Jo wishes she could meet you. :o)
congrats on the new machine! i hope you and debbie get along nicely for a good long time. 🙂
Woo hoo! Love the new machine. I love my Viking — I’ve been without it for a week and getting by with my old Kenmore. It clunks along, gets all knotted up in the bobbin all the time, constantly comes unthreaded and does not have a threader, doesn’t stop in the down position, and I can’t raise and lower the presser foot to the pivot position with a tap of my foot. All little features that I can no longer live without! Hope you enjoy yours!
Congrats on the new machine!! I bet you’re having so much fun learning all about it! I saw that bag swap, but I’m afraid my life is going to be too hectic with school starting up 😦
Congrats on your new friend! I have a Viking, it’s my second one. Love, love, love it!
I also love your practice piece, pretty pink!
This looks like such a wonderful swap. I have a few weeks too so I can decide if I am brave enough to participate. Congratulations on your new machine. It looks great. 🙂

Congrats on your new machine! Getting a new machine is better than Christmas! Wishing you many many MANY hours of happy sewing!
Congratulations on the new machine. I have a friend who just bought the Janome 1600P and I’m waiting to see how she likes it. You’re going to love the up/down feature. I saw the cute little bag tutorial over on Rachels site, so cute I plan to make one at some point. Very cute mouse pad.
Wow! She’s a beaut! How’s it going, are you adapting to Debbie and her awesome functionality?
Heart the mouse pad too!
Debbie is delicious. Have fun, Terri!
