I recently went out & bought an industrial sewing machine. Why I waited so long is beyond me. It is amazing & will change my sewing life as I knew it. For instance, this machine is such a bull that sewing through heavy leather is now an option. My mind is spinning with all the options that are now available. Here is a little bracelet that I whipped up. I love how the stitching is so thick & strong. There will be more of these to come!
