After looking at dozens of different sewing machines and the different stitch options available, I decided that I can't afford the sewing machine I want. Permit me a sigh will you? So, I thought to myself that I should try getting my broken machine fixed while I save up money to get the one I want. I took it in on Friday and the guy took one look at it and told me that, it may have the Kenmore logo on it, but it was definitely made by Janome. He also said it is a pretty good, solid machine. Maybe he says something like that to everybody, but it did make me feel a little better about spending money to fix it. He said that it was likely just in need of a tuneup, which, I'm ashamed to say, has not been done while I've owned it. I should get it back later this week, hopefully in perfect working order. Until then, I'll be staring at the empty space on my sewing table and dreaming of a new fancy machine in that space in the not-to-distant future. And I'll be prepping other projects, including putting together a tutorial on a felt needle book that I'm making.
Hi. My name is Carley. I love to sew, craft, and create. As a Jane-of all-crafts so to speak, I enjoy sewing, writing, cooking, drawing, photographing. But the constant thread (if you'll excuse the pun) throughout my weeks is needle arts.
