|Brother NV 50|
Back to my new buddy. It's a brother NV-50. The purchase was not planned. Though I have been wanting to
|My old buddy Singer 2105|
The uncle at Singer, Seri Serdang managed to revive my sweet old machine back to 'life'. But with a condition though - "Ini mesin sudah lama. Boleh jam lagi bila-bila masa". Well, my concerns were to finish all remaining orders & my kiddos' baju melayu. I prayed hard that she can at least bertahan until all is done. Though Cik Singer sometimes did went out of tune, my sewing missions were accomplished. Cik Singer's last assignment was the Baju Melayu(s). Jasamu ku kenang cik Singer!!! Now she just sits there...retired from her service. Thought of trading her in but decided to just keep her.
Initially, i had set my eyes on Singer Confidence. After giving it a long thought, and advises from others, i decided to go for a Brother NV-50. Price wise, the two are almost the same. Equally known for their name & good after sales service. However, NV-50 offers a lot more features than Singer Confidence. Hence I decided to go for the one than offers more for my money :).
Having using a basic machine for so long (with only FIVE choices of stitches), NV-50 is totally a new experience all over. Dah la computerised, ada 135 stiches to choose from! I kept wondering..apa aku nak buat dgn patterns banyak-banyak tu? Hehehe.. Still learning & getting used to all the fancy-shmancy buttons. Amazed at how much it can do, how smooth it runs...everything is at a touch of a button. No knob to turn except for the handwheel...only if necessary. Oh..and I love that it sews buttonholes in only 1 step ( previously it was 4 steps with cik Singer).

Now that I have this superb new buddy, I am wishing for more beautiful creations to come and for more time to make them too ;)
Oh..and the first project i worked on using my new machine was a beautiful tote bag in the gorgeous Dandy Damask Print..ordered by a friend who is now in Manchester, for her mother's birthday. Thanks Hana for your order!
Love note : Sorry for the long
