I personally really liked the Singer Confidence Stylist, primarily because of it's simplicity to use & the easy drop in bobbin ( without the need to pull up the bobbin thread with the hand wheel ), & also because it has 66 decorative embroidery stitch options.
Here's the winner of our threading race........can't believe we were all beat by a guy!
My youngest guest "Alex", & first time sewist. She was able to not only complete her fabric accessory case, but she also managed to make her very first pin cushion all under 1 hour.
Here I am with another one of my guests "Nellie", who also just recently opened her etsy store Bonita Couture. The outfit I'm wearing btw....I completed the night prior using pattern Simplicty 2374.
Also the day before....I made several fabric tie string bags for my guest to hold their fabric, patterns, and other goodies.
It was a Salad bar & lasagna & cupcakes for my guests.
