Cash is Good!

I have taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to post here as I am able.

How to Use the Janome Memory Craft 9000 Sewing Machine

I've recently purchased a used Janome Memory Craft 9000 Sewing Machine, and discovered that there is a pretty steep learning curve for those of us who have been used to fully mechanical, non-electronic sewing machines, which were the standard for 150 years.

I've begun a series of tutorials on sewing with the Janome MC9000, and will index the entries here.

Just wondering why you picked sharedreview as the place for your articles. These kind of articles would have been perfect for building niche sites =)

Plin- I don't think I have enough interest any more to maintain a sewing site, and I am one of the top people on SR, so it was a no-brainer to just add to my body of work there.

That is fair. Would you recommend SR? Based on my short time browsing through the site it seems to me the payout is a flat fee of $2. Have you considered something like InfoBarrel where it is a shared revenue model?

Thanks for your response. I am wondering whether to get into article writing and is looking for a site to start with.

That $2 per item info is THREE YEARS OLD and no longer valid. I wish we could make those sites that promote that go away. There is now a complex system of payment per readers and various other kinds of monetary rewards. See

I just purchased the same machine today, so I am a few months behind you in the learning curve. Have you tried to use the Alphabet fonts yet?? I can't seem to get mine to change size, and that's how I found your blog...! I have now bookmarked it in hopes you will add more to your tutorials..:))

I bought my machine some years ago and went to the distributors for a free two day start up tutorial. Well worth it!
