Machines and Shows

It has come to my attention that my little Featherweight (like my "girls") needs to have a rest now and then. Somewhat of a problem as I try to build stock. I've had to learn something about motors and capability. This is not my comfort zone. What do I know about machines? Not so much. So within the work schedule there will have to be balancing acts between other "must dos" to accommodate the rest periods. Either that, or set up one of the other machines or (heaven forbid) get an industrial (way too noisy).

O, and before I forget: I will be in the Roncy Rocks tomorrow from 10 - 6. If you're in Toronto and looking for something to do. Lots of music and art. I'll be near the library.

Have a great weekend


  1. Hello Barbara! there are new computerized motors that you can get for industrials - totally silent until you are sewing. I have one on my wishlist now.
