Welcome to Jackie's Craftroom

Welcome to my blog. A place for me to share my love of cardmaking, scrapbooking and bug covers with all my friends. Take a look around and see what I have been creating. I am a member of the Cricut MB, it is almost an addiction ;)
I love designing and making cards, dabble in scrapbooking and make the original reversible covers for all types of crafting gadgets.

My Happy Place = My Craft Room :)

New embroidery machine for me :)

Well after a hard think about it, OK one days think. I decided to invest in a new embroidery machine. Had to work a bit on Hubby to convince him that I really needed it. It should be here on Thurday.
It is a Janome MB-4, 4 needle embroidery machine, so no more changing the thread after every colour, and faster embroidery time, which means I can do more covers, yay.
It is very similar to the industrial Tajima machines we use at the embroidery shop I work for.

It has lots features, you know all the bells and whistles. The big seller was the $4000 worth of bonus goodies that came with it. A design software suite, and image design disc, chock full of designs and lots more.
I will be able to plug my laptop into it and transfer designs straight from the laptop. Although the machine weighs 20+ kilos, I will be able to take it to craft fairs and do while you wait embroidery.
