FOR THE QUILTERS AND SEWERS

You know life has a way of changing ones plans. About 4 years ago after my mother died I bought an embrodiery machine and the computer software. I thought that I could retire and not have to go to work every day and I would do wonders with the new machine. But life happens and I still work every day and never used the machine except to put our company name on several shirts. Last month I sat down at it and now I have no idea what to do and I can't find the software for the computer and I decided that I am never going to use this thing again. If I want to embroidery, I will get out the floss and hoops. Anyway, it is a Baby Lock Elure and has no hours on it. I want to sell it and thought I would offer it to forum members before I put an ad in the paper. I don't even remember what I paid for it, I know that the software was an additional 1200 or so. (but I can't find it). So if anyone of you want to make an offer, I will entertain most any offer. You would have to pay the shipping though. It has one feature that I like as far as sewing goes and that is a real basting stitch--like you would do by hand. I have the table that goes with it also.

I cleaned out my sewing room over the weekend and turned it into a room for my grandchildren. I of course kept my Huscavarna sewing machine and serger. I may want to do anothe quilt top or something. But I am definitely done with fashion sewing. I am to old to tailor things anymore and actually have no desire to do so. I will probably go back to the needlepointing that I can do in the winter time and play with Rosie and grandchildren.

Actually, I had hoped to sew for my granddaughters and was having a really good time doing so; but the other grandmother has only the two and she is the manager of a Peeples. so the girls get all the latest things and I didn't want to spoil her fun, so I quit sewing for them.

To much information I know. But if anyone is interested, let me know in the next week before I put an ad in the paper.

Like I said, I have no idea what I paid for the sewing machine. If anyone is interested look up the price and I will take half. (plus shipping). It is a good sewing machine also. If I didn't have the Viking (huscavarna) I would keep it.

Thanks.

Thats a nice machine your selling. I have a Viking Husquvarna (spellll???ing??) to (designer series) and I have yet to use the embroidery on it.

I am actually in the market for an Industrial 3 thread overlock Juki, anyone have one of those laying around? lol I'm talking to some guy on Ebay and may buy his. With the level of sewing I do for my etsy store, I want to stop using my home-machines and move to industrials because I worry I'm putting too much wear and tear on them.

Although, HOW to I break it to my husband that I am adding another machine?!??! lol I already have 7, yes, I said it..7..and I am not even sure where the heck to put #8, but I sew 8 + hours a day, I NEED different flavors..

I'd love to buy your Babylock, but I'm afraid my DH would call an attorney.

Kara, does that qualify as an obsession yet? I used to have one sewing machine. When my son had a garage sale a few years ago, he sold my sewing machine for $11, with a wood cabinet. I wanted to kill him.

That BabyLock Ellure is a really nice machine. I looked at that one when I bought mine a year ago. Lucille--I am a Baby Lock girl myself! I just bought myself the BL Espire a year ago in September.

For those interested in Lucille's machine--along with features etc. (probably not this exact model as they change features now and again) but check out---babylock.com

Click on embroidery machines and scroll down till you see the Ellure.

The model number is ESL whatever that means. I know that I am acting like I have the Alzimers (can't even spell it). I have sewn all my life and pieced quilts, upholstery, tailoring blazers, etc. But the want to has gone. My sewing room was set up with cutting table, all the machines, framed prints of old sewing machines and two really antique childrens machines and one from the 1960's. Manikins, dolls, antique children's iron board and irons. the granddaughters didn't want to play with the children's machines, they are all to into the computer, etc. I am going to get rid of most of it. I will probabley keep two antique children's late 1890-1900 and let the rest go. I need a framed Gene Autry or Roy Rogers Poster to put in there now for the boys. I cann't make it into a modern room. They are lucky (grandchildren) that I am letting them have a room of their own. I have never lived in a new house. This one was built in the 1920's. The previous one was a Victorian 14 room monster.

I thought about setting up the sewing room in the guest house; but decided that I didn't want to do that either. My bookkeeper is trying to sort out her mother's stuff now and doesn't have a clue what to do with all the stuff. I vow that my children won't have that problem. what ever they put in the auction will be good stuff--no junk. Actually I am getting obsessive about it. My sister's husband has no idea what to do with her stuff. She died in January and the house still has all her stuff including her cosmetics. I want to go to Mississippi and clean it out for him.

I still see quilt patterns that I would like to sew the pieces parts though. Trouble is now I can't hold the little quilting needle to do the hand quilting and there are not any more old ladies that still do it either.

Again to much information. Will take best offer. I think that the forum members that put the quilts together should get first choice.
