On Wednesday I finally broke down and bought myself a new travel size sewing machine. I chose the Janome AQS2009. My old travel machine is also a Janome and I've been very happy with it, but it doesn't have the versitility of this machine. I normally shun newer computerized machines in favor of the good old fashioned machines that are all metal and mechanical, but I needed a machine with a good applique button hole stitch and this machine gives me that for a relatively small investment. I look forward to spending many happy years with my new baby.
