Are you doing the Bonnie Hunter mystery? I'm not doing it this year, I've done several of hers and it is a fun process.

Yes, I am. I've never done one of her mysteries before, but I'm having fun with this one, and I'm having fun with the new machine. Boy, have machines come a long way in the 26 years since I bought a new one, even with my old machine being computerized.

I can say that I am loving that hover feature on the 590, which is something that the new 5 series has that the 770QE does not have, and that is making me feel like the space trade-off was worth it. Of course, I haven't quilted anything on it yet, but even the extra 1.5" is more space than I had before, so that will make a difference.

I'm really looking forward to taking the machine classes in a couple of weeks, and especially learning how to do the embroidery.

I did end up ordering rolling cases for the machine. I found a set on Amazon that got rave reviews, and will fit my machine in the bottom one, and the embroidery module should fit in the middle unit. The top unit looks like it is for project supplies and such. According the package tracking, that is arriving today!

I am retiring next May, so should be able to take more classes after that since a lot of them are during the day when I am working.

I am tickled with the new purchase!
