Jackie said she didn’t think I’d be picking up my sewing machine tomorrow because there was a big snow storm coming. She already cancelled her sewing classes for tomorrow. It usually takes a week to have a machine fixed at Heirloom Sewing in Glens Falls NY, but when I let Jackie know I used my machine almost every day, we worked it out so I could have it back the next day. (unless, of course, there’s a snow storm). I’ve really come to appreciate this sewing shop. When we moved I looked for a sewing machine shop that was closer to the new farm, but they all seem to send the machines to a warehouse in New Jersey to be fixed. I like to keep my machine closer to home and Jackie does a great job doing all the work on the machines herself, as well as being really helpful and understanding.
So hopefully I’ll have my machine back by Wednesday. The automatic thread cutter stopped working last Thursday and it’s impossible for me to use the free motion part of the machine without it. (It ties off the thread as well as cuts it). So for the next couple of days I’ll use my 25 year old Singer to finish my Wild Geranium Quilt. As long as I can make it through the snow to my studio. So much for Spring.
