…but you would think it was for how many times I’ve mulled the idea over in my head.
I’m thinking again about getting one of these devils. There is a Viking U-Sew in the Joann’s I frequent most often and every time I walk by it I stealthily sit down in the seat an proceed to do the demo.
They’ve stared looking at me funny. Its getting to the point that if I left a project in my purse, I could probably get it finished up for how many times I’ve sat down to play at it.
I have a lot of design sketches in my notebook for an organic series of fiber art. For the longest time I wasn’t really sure how I would execute that until the temptress Deb started doing lots of work with wool in it.
Her work is gorgeous.
And the feel of it hits the mark like a ton of bricks for the work I had in mind.
I have wool roving that would make excellent foundations for these pieces if only I felted them. Needle or wet felting by hand is not really an option for me. I’m fairly confident I’m already pushing my luck with the amount of handwork I do since I always need to wear a wrist brace when I work. Felting by hand would surely push my wrist into rebellion so I keep going back to look at the machines.
So I figured I would ask the collective wisdom of the blog: anyone out there got one? Which brand and are you glad you picked one up?
