As most of you know, I have participated in the American Sewing Expo's Passion For Fashion contest for the last few years. I was so very honored when I saw the garment that I created last year on this year's expo cover. I didn't win a place in the contest, but I was chosen as the People's Choice winner. I think that is pretty special:) Just quickly, I have to brag just a little. The model is Gabrielle. I absolutely love this gal! Wonderful model, gorgeous, so very sweet and she is brilliant on top of it all. She graduated as valedictorian of her senior class and she is now having a blast in college. I think she is going to set the world on fire!
The Passion For Fashion contest is sponsored by Babylock. I bought my first Babylock machine quite a few years ago, a serger. I LOVE this machine and I will not own any other brand of serger now that I have owned this machine. No one paid me to say that BTW!Babylock Evolve, an eight thread serger, it basically does everything short of washing my dishes!! Fabulous machine. You can see that it is well used. I should have cleaned out my waste catcher before I took the picture. Their new serger is call Evolution. I have not looked at this machine, so I really can't say much about it, but if it is anything like my Evolve, it's a great machine. One of the best things about the machine is the way it threads itself. What a wonderful invention.
The little machine that I won is the Anna and I must admit that I am so very happy with this machine. For a small machine, it does so much, has lots of stitch options, sews through very thick layers of fabric and it weighs almost nothing. For years I have lugged around a heavy Bernina machine (sorry Babylock!) when I travel. Not anymore though. Anna and I will now be traveling partners.
Whenever you are in the market for a new machine, put Babylock on your look at list. I've been very happy with the quality of their machines.
