Equipment

I've created a list of the vairous pieces of equipment that I use to create my items and projects.  I hope you find some of this informaiton useful!

 

Juki Exceed F400 Quilting Sewing Machine

First and foremost, the most crucial piece of equipment is my sewing machine. I used an entry level machine for almost 4 years, but then one fateful evening, it died.

I had been slowly researching my next sewing machine, but I never really pushed myself to make a decision.  The decision was forced the night my Brother died.

I chose the Juki Exceed F400. Primarily, the deciding factor came when I saw Leah Day's Juki Exceed F400 review- she uses it for her Craftsy classes!   You can also see the photographs of the unboxing on my blog.

Since I do quilt, I was in need of the quilting extension table for the Juki!

 


 

Design Studio Drafting Table

We are in the somewhat small apartment, so I needed a table that would work in small amount of space and allow me to move around. I found the Design Studio folding drafting table on Amazon and decided to give it a shot. I can move it about the apartment. It does wobble a little bit, but it works for what I use it for.

 


 

Huion 23.5 Inch Tatoo Tracing Light Table LED Light Box 

I realized that I would need to be able to draw and trace designs that I had sketched out.   After a little research, I discovered this great Light Table by Huion.   The white LED can cab dimmed and brightened enough to go through many types of paper.  I've been very happy with this table!

I decided that I needed something to help estimate shipping costs, so I gave this little scale a go!
