I have brought a new sewing machine, the Brother SQ9050 Computerized Sewing and Quilting.
I have been wanting to move up to a machine with computerized features for stitch, width and length control. It features 100 unique built-in-stitches, 140 stitch functions plus 55 alphanumeric stitches and 8 styles of 1-step auto-size buttonholes. The alphanumeric stitches for basic monogramming and 8 styles of buttonholes were a selling high-point for me on this machine. The machine also has a wide table for large projects and includes a walking foot! I plan to learn the features of the machine throughout the week!
