Prep Work!

My go to machine for all my free-motion work is the Janome 1600P.  This is a straight stitch sewing machine designed for home use. It has all of the outward appearances of an industrial sewing machine… built in cone thread stands, heavy duty metal construction, and it is a single stitch only machine. A review of this machine can be found HERE

Today I got some fabrics ready to begin a few underwater embroideries. I love to use batiks for these as the colours are so vibrant. My stabilizer of choice is Sulky Totally Stable. You can see some of my green / blue / turquoise threads to the left.

Some machine stitching has been added to these. Now for some hand embroidery, and maybe a fish or two.



  1. I have a PFAFF Grand Quilter. It's the Janome body with a different shell. I love it. It's fun seeing your work in progress.

  2. I have a Janome Decor Excel and I wouldn't be without it. Definitely a fan of Janome! Looking forward to seeing what you create in the underwater theme.
