See my year old Janome sitting on my cutting table? Why do you ask? Because it won't sew a straight stitch...it takes three or four stitches and then it jags to the side and jams. Next weekend I will be taking it to the sewing machine shop to be repaired...
Thank goodness, I have a spare plus one. I pulled my Janome 6600P out and set her up so that I can finish up my weekend sewing. But I can already tell that I'm going to miss my 8900. The extra large opening, all of the light, and the weight of her is missing in my 6600P ~ though I'm not complaining. I'm thrilled that I have a spare to turn to so that I can keep on sewing.
It's interesting because just this evening, I was thinking that when I go on vacation in May, that I would put both the 8900 and the Babylock serger in the shop for their annual check-ups. Guess the 6600P and the serger will be heading to the shop in May instead because their big sister is going in sooner than that.
This really stinks because my iPad died this week too. I googled it and did everything suggested and still no go. I will take it to the genius bar at the Apple Store but I don't have much hope for it. I'm especially bummed cause I can't remember the last time I backed the dang thing up and just hope that "the cloud" held onto most of my stuff!
This means there will be next to no fabric buying going on around here. Sewing machine check ups cost almost $200 for my computerized machines and that's before repairs. I was rocking a iPad2 so will upgrade to an iPad Air but this is an unforeseen expense. Thank goodness I have a well stocked sewing cave!!! I'm also thankful that my next couple of projects are all from fabric that's already in the collection.
I'm sure my 8900 will be fixed and returned to me soon but I'm missing my favorite things already...
...as always more later!
