Hello all,

Spurred on by the talented Julie Starr and several others on Pattern Review that I have seen, I spent a few quite contented hours in my sewing room yesterday working on McCalls 6996.

I’m Gonna Make You An Offer You Can’t Refuse

A few years ago I bought a Pfaff Hobbylock.  I brought it home and promptly named it Fraulein Schweiger (name that movie).  It wasn’t a big investment and has served me well through garments, costumes, drapes and so on.  In its short time with me, it has pumped out miles of lovely finished seams.

I wasn’t always diligent at keeping it as lint free as one should, however I did give it an overhaul every month or two; removing debris and oiling the moving parts.

But lately it seemed that I fought with it more often than not.  So, while out running errands today, I took it in for servicing.

The lovely gentleman there truly made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  He paid me just shy of my original purchase price to trade in on a new serger.  The cost to repair was such that it just didn’t make sense to do anything other than take the deal.  Sigh, what’s a girl to do.

Here is my shiny new Janome, fresh out of the box.  image

Happy Valentines Day indeed!
