Day 1 with the Laura Ashley NX-2000
So far I have to say that I am quite impressed with this sewing machine. After excitedly opening the box and plugging in the machine I immediately wanted to use it. Who reads manuals anyway? I found it very simple to wind the bobbin and thread the machine without having to consult the manual. Just for fun, though, I clicked through the on screen help section to make sure I had threaded it correctly. It's so neat having everything right at your fingertips on the touch screen - unlike the knobs on my circa 1990 Pfaff.
Thankfully this wasn't a setback at all as it was really easy to change the needle.
One fun perk of this machine is you just press a button and - voila! The machine threads itself. Very impressive.
I love that you can see the bobbin while you're sewing so you know if you're about to run out.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you the project I am starting on. Even though I'll only have this beautiful sewing machine in my possession for a week, I have big ambitions for it! Between renovating bedrooms, cooking a turkey, visiting my family for Thanksgiving, hosting a Fall Brunch for friends and doing hair, I am sure I'll have plenty of time to sew! Who needs to sleep anyway?
