When my Maw-Maw bought me a sewing machine at 16 I am sure she didn’t realize how much use it would really get. Ten years later- I think it’s time to upgrade! I have managed to do a lot on my basic, very basic, sewing machine. It really needs to be serviced (NEVER has been serviced!) because it’s getting pretty unreliable. But did you know there are a million ka-gillion sewing machines! My oh my. There are some budget friendly ones at Joann’s that have good reviews but they are all Singer and I haven’t heard a lot of good things in person about Singer anymore?? Brother has good reviews everywhere and they are also affordable, except for one- which would be a good machine I could grow with…. so…. maybe Christmas?
Does anyone have a sewing machine they would recommend or not recommend??
Lola got to play at Gram and Popper’s today while I did a lot of sewing! I learned how to make… triple pinch pleat curtains! It seemed so fancy- but actually was really easy. Surprisingly so! So now my kitchen has new curtains! It was so nice to just sew in a quiet house and not worry about Lola stepping on the pedal, taking the pins, running away leaving a trail of thread behind her, etc… (Thanks Gram and Popper) I have been looking into finding her a fake sewing machine! She seems to really, really love mine. Maybe she can play with mine (no needle or power of course) if I get a new one! :)
Happy Sewing Day to me! :)
Oh and please let me know if you know anything about sewing machines or if you know anyone who does sewing lessons! :)
