omg...on an old straight stitch Juki, that most longarmers would die to have...ya know if -I- put my fingers as close to the needle as Manuel does, I'd have them all sewn together...but with a bit of practice (20 yrs or so...) I might be able to teach myself...
I have a new Janome 11,000 that I'm having sent back's screwy and been in the shop 3 times already and I bet I haven't embroidered on it more than 10 times. (since last Oct....because it is so screwy...) My patience is at an end with it now....
I know I'm not the only one with an 11,000 lemon...a few of the first ones out,(which mine is) have had to go back...
I envy Manuel his old Juki and his skill...

WOW that is amazing. I bet her gets a lot of money for those designs they have to be "one of a kinds" the way he does that, no two alike.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

The piped pocket seamed demo which is also on the same page, was another one that blew me away. I had such a hard time figuring out what the heck she was doing with that first curved piece~! It'd take me all day to just figure out which way to put the fabric so when I turned it, I didn't have the inside on the outside and upside down. Guess that's what happens when you do pockets all day long! Maybe she can't put in a zipper very well, ya think??

Wasn't that something! You could tell that lady could sew in her sleep, so quick and perfect.
