How many of you remember the 'Big Bad Boy' I acquired over 7 years ago? If you recall, he came with a Handi-Quilter that I was never able to use...space and Big Bad Boy (my name for this machine) tension problems being the reasons.
The Big Bad Boy is a Janome 1600P DB...a workhorse, for sure...built for speed and does only straight stitching.
Well. The poor thing has been neglected all these years. I planned to send him for a maintenance check (and please, could you fix the tension?) several times, the last being almost 3 years ago. However, it never did get done. Until now. I got him in for a check-up at my LQS this week and all is good.
I am very much looking forward to using the BBB for piecing. The next thing I need to do is to buy a walking foot so that I can do some easy quilting with this BBB. Did I mention that he has a larger work area than my Naomi Janome?
The results of my test drive with him: works like a charm, though noisier than Naomi Janome. Ah well...cannot have everything, right? Love this Big Bad Boy! Making plans to work with him tomorrow.
How is your weekend going?
