Meet Kuki- My Juki HZL F600

Well after the agonising death of my cheapie sewing machine (the tension wheel was never happy but after I forgot to lower the presser foot and did a little FMQ practice it out and died) there is a new love in my life.

So excited to cut these straps

It really is true love and I will have to write a suitably gushing review post to count the ways I love her but apart from the odd user error (note to self: read the manual) she is an absolute dream to sew on.

I have mostly been catching up on swaps and bees so I haven't finished any of my ongoing projects yet but I feel the quality of what I can produce has been raised to ten times what it was so hopefully there will be lots of finishes in my future.

One reason I have found I sew with more skill and precision is the selection of feet that come with the F600. In the past I have been known to fudge it. Yes really, if I didn't gave the right foot or if it was missing I would just sew faster with hope. This is not a technique I would recommend. Now though I have no excuse as look at this selection.

Yes that is a tray of feet with more feet in the bag and then under the tray - like a surprise second tray in the chocolate box - is a special holder for the buttonhole foot. The buttonholes are really lovely and easy.

Well that enough for now, I'm off to stroke Kuki ;)
