meet my new toy
so i took my 10-year-old singer machine to my private sewing lesson yesterday and it was a mess. kept skipping stitches, pulling, etc. hmmmm, maybe that's why i pulled it out recently for the first time in five years. well, after playing on the creme-de-la-creme bernina sewing machine for my session (after the teacher lost patience with mine), i decided it was time to get one that worked. it's from bernina's lower end line, bernette.
as i drove home from rockville with it (that journey is a WHOLE other blog post), i carried it as if it was sacred. planned to break it out last night but got caught up on a call with my webmaster. saving it for a special moment. maybe after tonight's trunk show. i feel like i should have a party for it - like a "meet my new machine" soiree. isn't it the cutest thing ever? AND you can push a button for it to sew without using the foot petal. i've never heard of such a thing. gotta get some yummy eco-friendly fabric to start sewing on. all my stash is with my seamstress in ohio (where TranquiliT is sewn).
off to teach a yin and restorative yoga workshop, then to tranquil space bethesda for a trunk show. happy saturday!
