Well here's the post about all of my new stash as promised :)
I'd briefly mentioned about struggling with my brother sewing machine on fabric bulk with a thickness of 4mm at a craft group. They suggested a new machine as it was also noisy, I protested as I didn't think I did enough sewing to warrant the cost but then they had a sneaky reply..."You might sew more with a new machine". I repeated this to my other half and he agreed with them so off on the hunt I went.
I browsed the Sewing Machine Direct site as I had heard good things about them and was able to narrow it down to two choices. I sent an email to the company asking for more information, they were quick to reply with pros and cons of both and even mentioned a machine that was a good combination of the two. I decided to go for the combination of the two and here it is:

I have started one of the planned quilted bags. I have zig-zagged fabric and made a small clutch bag from Studio Cherie. I'll be attempting it again soon as either the fabric wasn't heavy enough or the sew in interfacing was the wrong weight.

|Fabric from Minerva Crafts|
|Cross stitch acquisitions.|
I've got another metre of fabric on the way as there was a small mix up and two out of print charts from Tilton Crafts. I hope you're all having a good weekend.
