Hello, I’m Tsuya. I’m new to thread.com but not to sewing. Right now I’m taking a couture sewing techniques class and I’m haveing a blast. I sell viking sewing machines and go to school for fashion design. Our school has a fashion show coming up and I am busy at work there!

So, yeah I just wanted to introduce myself. Thanks for looking!

    Just wondering since you also sell Vikings what is your input on the new machines? I'm in the market for a garment, home decor machine, and the perfect stitch through most anything along with a nice buttonhole.

    By the way the couture class your taking sounds fascinating. Keep us posted on anything you learn that you'd like to share...

      Well there are alot of good machines out there. The sapphires are wonderful, they sew through just about everything (I say that because I haven't tried some fabrics like leather on it) including vinyl without a problem. The SE Limited Edition works just like the original SE it just has a jumpstitch cutter and a whole lot of goodies that come with it. Then there is the singer line, they all sew about the same and for the price point they are very good machines. Though the Inspiration line of Singers has some serious problems.

      As for the P102, the new machine comeing out this summer, I know nothing. The company hasn't given any new information out about that machine, including the name. Though when I find out more I'll tell.

      I've had a number of different machines but as for the perfect stitch I rate first the Bernina and then the Viking.  The very first thing anyone should check before buying any machine is the straight stitch.  Quality usually follows along with a great straight stitch.  Next check for a dropped feed and needle down option.  You can save a lot  of time just by being particular about the quality of the straight stitch.  This holds true with used machines too no matter how old they are.

    Welcome, Tsuya! I'm thinking of taking the couture certificate next at FIT, just finishing my draping certificate.

      Neat! I'm hoping to get my masters in FD. At the end of September I'll have a Bachlers (I know that's spelt wrong) Degree and I'm hoping to be able to teach at my current institution.
