Hi Alice and Nina, thank you for your welcome to Powell River 🙂
We are settling in quite nicely – and looking forward to the upcoming blackberry festival, at least I am! My sewing room is set up but the HQ16, table and frame are not. Once we have some of the reno’s done on the new (to us) home we’ll be setting up the whole system but that probably won’t be until late fall.
Anyone interested in learning more about the HQ16 are welcome to email me at email@example.com and I’d be happy to answer what questions I can. It’s a great machine even though I’ve nick-named him Harry due to the many harried moments on the learning curve!
