About two months ago, I purchased my first sewing machine - a Brother ES2000! It is fabulous and idiot proof, for the most part. As long as you don't stick your hand under the needle you're A - Okay! The machine has an LCD screen that shows you your stitch length and stitch type (77 different stitch functions). With a click of a button, I'm pretty much set! I've actually started on my first project. I'll write about about it soon. Oh - and the best part is that it's white with green (my favorite color)! Now, the only thing my new Brother needs is a name...any suggestions?
