My name is Andrea and I am from Illinois.

I joined this forum a week ago and have read some questions and comments. There is so much information that is passed on, its incredible!

I own a Husqvarna Viking 950E. I love it so much that I am now the Manager of a Husqvarna dealership. I have a great time playing with the machines!

I love to make baby clothes. Especially embroidering little things like ladybugs, tugboats or flowers on the butt of the pants! How cute!!! I am in the process of making my 3 Nieces and my FiancÚs 2 Nephews scarves, hats & mittens out of fleece. Now you can see why I make baby clothes LOL!

I cant wait to share what I know with you, as I know you will share with me!

Thank you

Welcome Andrea!

It's terrific here. Don't forget to go to "Search" with questions too. There's a huge archive of information there.

Hope to see you often.

Thank you so much.

My mom tells me all the time I have her dream job.

I need to get a digital camera so I can post some of my creations for you :sad: . I am hoping Santa gives me a camera for Christmas. :bluesmile. As soon as I get some pics I will let you know!

The mittens I made for my nieces turned out so cute! Working on the hats cant decide what type of hat. Only a couple more weeks.

ACK!!! I better get back to sewing!

Welcome to the forum!

You have my mother in law's dream job too. I'm a very beginner and would love to have a machine that embroiders but I have an excellent older model Janome Home machine that works very well. I need to use that first.

Have a great time playing with the machines. Everyone should have a job that they love.
