Crescendo is an absolute dream. She just has this glow about her. Seriously, though, no more of that yellow, dim light. This baby lights up...in more than one way. She also has a red light beam that predicts the future. Well, at least it shows you where your stitches are going to be if you stay the course of what you're sewing. It comes in handy for darts. Am I the only one who hates to draw dart lines? This does all the work for you, just start at the seam and aim it at the ending point and voila! Perfect darts every time.
But her impressiveness doesn't end there. No siree. I'm just beginning. She. Has. An. Automatic. Needle. Threader. I am so spoiled. I never want to thread another needle again! That's right. No more cutting of fuzzy ends, licking and trying 13 times to get that darn thread through the tiny whole. Such a dream.
What else do I love about my new Babylock? She politely lets me know I'm running out of bobbin thread so I don't get caught in that moment where I've just stitched the most beautiful topstitching of my life for the past 5 minutes...except there's no bobbin thread! Never again. Crescendo keeps me informed. She also doesn't mind that I like to push her buttons: A button for needle up/down. A button for going (no pedal needed if you prefer!) A button for the presser foot (I know!) And, my all time favorite button....a thread clipping button!!! Doesn't it just make your heart beat faster?
I know a mother is rather partial to her babies, but I got a good one, guys. I already have so many adventures planned with her, I can't wait. I don't even mind staying up through the night with her, she's such good company.
