Newest member of the family – Sapphire 965Q
We have a new arrival to the Homemade Emily Jane sewing studio!!!!
I’m very excited to announce the newest addition to my sewing family… the Husqvarna Sapphire 965Q!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably have seen a few photos of my new love on my feed, but I wanted to share an official announcement with you all!
A little backstory – For my 16th birthday my parents got me a sewing machine – my first love – a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 183 model. I was in a sewing class in school at the time and has been learning on an Emerald 116. I was thrilled, but honestly, I didn’t know how much use this machine would get until I started quilting three and a half years later. Now I use my Emerald 183 daily, and the need for an upgrade has become apparent. My 8 year old Emerald has been so good to me, so I knew I’d be happy if I stuck with the Husqvarna Viking brand. After extensive research, I decided to dive in and get the SAPPHIRE! I can’t wait to get started on my brand-new beast of a machine! This new machine does all the same stuff as my old one and SO. MUCH. MORE.
I’ve spent the better part of my free time leading up to getting the machine just looking up photos/information online and glancing over the owner’s manual. I’m so stinkin’ excited to now have this new sewing machine up and running! I’m going to be working on new skills, and incorporating the use of other feet/functions as well! Stay tuned to learn along with me!
So now for the hard part… what should I name this new baby of mine? Please comment below if you have any suggestions!!
