My Baby is sick...

Well it finally happened...right in the middle of sewing the American Girl doll clothes...my sewing machine quit! Now I know that I should have taken it to the shop before now (maybe back when it was groaning about making all those pintucks!) but I just didn't want to part with my baby. Thank God I have a spare but its not the same as sewing on my Janome. So now what to do...what to do...well I mean besides getting my baby to the sewing hospital, ASAP! This is seriously going to impact my sewing and can you spell G-R-O-U-C-H-Y!!!! Yeah, that's gonna be me until my baby comes home!

I am seriously thinking about looking for a "new" used TOL machine because even though my spare, Viking, is good in a pinch ~ it is missing too many of the features that I have grown accustomed to with my Janome.

First the digital camera and now my sewing machine...guess I am gonna sit on these couches a little longer - 'cause I gotta sew!

  5. Oh no! Not the sewing machine! I feel your pain...I've waited too long in the past and then am anxiously calling the repair shop asking when my baby will be ready to come home. I too have a backup machine, but its not the same. Hope its a quick and inexpensive cure!

  7. How awful for you! I don't have a backup machine. I don't know what I would do if my machine had to go in for repairs. I hope you are not without your machine for too long.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your sick machine. In the mean time, grab a few sewing magazines or books and enjoy the reading!

  10. Oh, goodness! I can't imagine life without my machine! I have a Janome, too and love it. My husband suggested I trade in mine for an upgrade - absolutely NOT! I have personal attachment to that machine - it and I have made quite a few nice things together. I hate to even take it in for tune-ups!

  12. I hear you about the couches! I want new ones too but fabric and sewing stuff and RTW clothes keep calling to me first. Sorry to hear your machine is broken. That sucks. And you sew all the time!

    PS - thanks for your comments on my blog and the congrats on my new job.

  13. Ack, I hate when that happens! I purchased a "backup" TOL machine for the same reason, LOL. Although...I ended up liking the backup better than the baby, so the backup is now baby and baby is now backup. Got that? :D :D

  14. Sorry about your machine. That stinks. I had a sewing machine die on me three months after I purchased it, and the only dealer in my area couldn't be reached. Hope your baby gets well soon!

  15. I'm hoping for a quick recovery for your machine. That's even worse than having the washing machine die in mid-cycle. At least there are laundromats - but where does a sewing addict go for a temporary sewing machine? Good luck!

  16. Just wanted to let you know about a great machine I got at Walmart for a backup. It's a Brother 4000. Makes the most beautiful button holes. Some fancy stitches. Some extra feet. All this for only $128! It's very light weight, and would be great to take to classes. Plus it has an LED light that is really bright. I bought my daughter a $500 low end Elna, and this Brother is 10x better!

  17. Oh, I feel your pain. I hope your baby makes it back right quick. The couches can wait, sewing can't. Show us your new baby or back up when you get it. (wink)
