The Loaner

Last week, I handed over my Bernina to the Gratz Sewing for some much needed TLC. My top thread was looping on my bobbin side.

When you are without your machine, doesn't it feel like having your arm cut off?

Well, it went from bad to worse. I was trying to learn my 1/4" seam allowance on my new machine, and started switching feet. My needle position didn't like the foot.

The foot was plastic and the needle went all the way through the foot. Even after changing the needle, I had skipped stitches. Needless to say, I turned over that machine to Gratz as well.

Now, I would have been armless. Apparently two sewing machines is not enough for me.

Luckily, my best quilting buddy, Cheri loaned me her Bernina. My goal is to give it back to her in working order.

Hey, Nathan --
Welcome back! I've missed you.
I must ask, did you sign any kind of promisory note with Cheri???? It's when we meet hard times when we know who our friends are, right?
Glad to know you are not limbless and able to continue quilting. I'm looking forward to seeing blogs about your projects again.
