The first machine I'm going to introduce you to is the New Home ACH Type F sewing machine.
The next one is an Anker RZ sewing machine. We saw our first one just a few days and my husband fell in love.
This is a beast of a machine. The head weighs over 35 pounds. My husband found this at our third stop of the day. We don't stop into that shop often, I don't know why it's only 4 miles from our normal shop. We walked around, I didn't see anything that I really wanted and had a use for. I found a couple of purses but I have more purses than I have sewing machines. While looking at purses I lost my husband. When I found him he was checking the Anker out. I looked at and said "How did I miss that?" It is huge and stunning, I couldn't figure out how on earth I missed it. After he got done checking it out he put it back the way he found it and I figured out how I missed it. The table was covered with other items. He wasn't sold on it so we ran down the road to our normal shop.
We checked out stuff and chatted with the owner at our regular shop. He looked at a couple of treadle machines there. We got to check out some new items she had but didn't know what to do with it. She got a couple of in progress hexi projects and a gallon bag of hexis. I'm waiting for those to come out, I think I might snatch them up and make it my first hexi project. I was sure after we got done chatting and playing he would go get one of the treadles. He didn't though, we said our good-byes and headed out to the car. We went back to the other store.
He went back to the machine and I did some more looking. That's when I found the quilt, it has never been used. Someone pieced it, quilted it, but didn't bind it. It's a queen size too. I knew about how long it would take for him to get the head out so I went back to help him bring it all to the front. It was the first time he put a head on my arm and I had to say nope. It was that heavy. The rest of our Friday was packed but it didn't take long for him to have it running Saturday. It takes industrial needles and we need to track those down so we can do some real sewing on it.
