Here’s Stella!

Here she is.  My Darling Husband suggested a trip to Sewing World so we could do some research on machines.  They have many machines all set up with scrap fabrics so I tried out a couple of Janome.  This beauty was 1/2 price (though I think the original price was inflated) and was $150 less than what it seemed to be selling on eBay and other online retailers so we purchased on the spot.  Obviously, buying locally also means I’ll have local assistance and I feel good supporting those wonderful women.  They actually give a hug with machine purchases.  Isn’t that cute?

In case you can’t see in the photo she is a Janome 4120 QDC.  She has a built-in thread cutter, a stupid amount of stitches, including the alphabet (?), and came with a table attachment.  Great for quilting but should also be nice to hold some projects.

She is named Stella for Stella McCartney.  I name my machines (and cars) after fashion designers.  I just do.  I can’t wait to really get using her!

  1. I think your husband is a keeper too for suggesting shopping for a machine! I bet your serger is just as delighted to have a new roommate too! A new machine in the house is always a happy occasion- so on with the celebrating!

  2. Ooh, nice! I have the 3160QDC and really like it. Once you start using the threadcutter you’ll miss it on every machine you use that doesn’t have it.

  3. I have a Janome 3160QDC too. I love it, besides the thread cutter, it also has a needle threader, which I could not live without. No alphabet though! You are going to love your new machine!
