I had ordered the Janome 720 specifically to take with me to the Slow Stitching Movement Retreat coming up in April in Lambertville, NJ.

Unfortunately, there have been shipping problems that have delayed my oder. After nearly two weeks the machine has still not shipped. In the mean time I discovered that Pocono Sew and Vac would be supplying Janome machines for the retreat. Those machine are bound to be much nicer than the 720, so I decided to cancel my order and put myself on the list of people needing a machine. That way I will be able to experience a better machine before making my final purchase.

I have to admit that when I found out that Janome machines would be on hand for the workshop I started to experience machine envy and regret my 720 purchase. I didn’t want to be the only one not using a cool machine at the retreat.

I’m looking forward to using my mystery Janome machine for three days. And who knows? They may even offer us a deal at the retreat.
