I would like you to meet Ovis

When my Aunt passed away everyone when kinda crazy grabbing pretty much everything in site. There was just one thing I requested that would mean a lot to me if I got it as she used to sew as well. Whilst she wasn't a quilter she did used to make clothes and she would knit as well. I don't know who took the materials and knitting things....
I didn't expect to get it either, but when my Father came home for a weekend he bought it with him. I was surprised and moved that he had kept it back for me as she requested it go to someone who would love it. 

So without further ado this is Ovis


 The flatbed is much larger than the one on Jano...though surprisingly Ovis weighs a lot less....
 He has a digital display and variable stitch dial

 Buttons and switches for use without the presser foot....


A handy thread guide and even a separate bobbin rewinding section. 


He has a less than weird needle threader, which took me a while to figure out how to use....until I gave up and threaded it the normal way......



He cam supplied with a little bag of accessories which look like they were never used...

As well as these feet...I had to check the manual to see what they were all for .... 


The lower bobbin case..which luckily one was already in place as for the life of me I can't work out the instructions on how to refit one.....


The less than attractive cover....I will have to make him one...His measurements have been taken.....hehehehe.

I haven't yet given him a test run, but that will be all in good time. 

Watch this space.
