Husqvarna Viking Topaz 30 Sewing and Embroidery Machine

I finally did it! I found the perfect sewing machine for me! Actually it is technically a Designer Topaz 30 Sewing and Embroidery machine.
Isn't it lovely?
So ... the more and more I shopped for a new sewing machine the more I saw and in all honesty got a little overwhelmed (but we have talked about that before - the variety of machines as well as sewing machine dealers).
I found a sewing machine dealer that I really like, not too far from my home - and from there it was just a matter of test driving a few of the sewing machines that I had already looked at.
I didn't go in looking for machine embroidery. I want to do a little beginner quilting, some sewing for the kids and maybe a few fun sewing projects for me or for around the house (who doesn't look at their dining room and think I could make great curtains for in here?).
Then I fell in love with the Designer Topaz. It had all the sewing features I wanted ...
- hundreds of decorative stitches
- a large free arm area
- built in button hole
- includes several presser feet
- built in needle threader
- great lighting
- programmable memories
Plus the ability to embroider!
Something tells me we are going to spend a lot of time talking about all the extra little goodies that came with the machine. More than tons of free embroidery designs and hoops and accessroy feet and software!
Here is a link if you want to know more specifics about the machine.

I have had so much fun just getting it out of the box and setting up space for it I haven't taken any pictures (I borrowed this one from the Husqvarna Viking website) - but I will take some of my own! If I can just keep myself out of my sketch book or off-line for a few minutes trying to decide which sewing project will be first!
