I have been threatening to buy a sewing machine for several years now and finally did it this week. I am tired of hand sewing gear I am making or modifying. Last week I put a used Juki LU-562 on "lay-away" since for tax reason I want to pay for it after the first of the year. Also it will not fit in my car so I can not pick it up till I am back in town with my truck the first week of January. The machine has been professionally rebuilt and comes with new table and motor. Here is a stock photo, I am totally new to the sewing machine world. The shop I bought this from is going to give me some basic lessons on how to run it. Are there any folks in the Spokane or Yakima area that might be able to give me some tips? My 2 first projects that I want to tackle are a custom radio bra for ski patrol and a custom weight belt for my GF.
