I don't have a day job. Professional seamstress.
So I'm sewing for four hours every day, with all sorts of materials.
I got an awsome sewing machine, if you are looking for a computerized entry level machine PLEASE look into this one.
The JANOME 4030QDC
Its a tough little bantha that can sew layers'n'layers of fabric. Leather, monster-fur, plastic, no problem. I have had it for a year and havent had so much as a thread jam. It comes with everything, the quilt tray, a million other accesories etc. I have tried several different brands of sewing machine but my little janome makes me the happiest ^^
