I am tired. Therefore my brain can’t seem to find all the things it has thought of blogging about.
Today I (finally) took my machines in for some service. The desperately needed some TLC from the service guy. Some deep cleaning and a good oiling – a few repairs. My sewing table looked so empty and forlorn when I left, machines tucked into the back of my car.
I mentioned, in my interview with Janome, that the main reason I shopped Janome first when I upgraded, was because of the service I received with my first Janome. Same place I went today to have my machines serviced. They have always done their best to have me back in business as soon as possible. A couple of days usually.
Around 11 this morning I dropped them off and headed to my Mom’s for the day, to play with her new sewing machine and serger. I made one of my girl’s Easter dress and cut out another one. We went to Wendy’s for lunch. Travis came over after work and picked up pizza on his way through town. YAY for not having to cook at all 🙂
My girls worked on crafts, played legos, played with Grandma’s playmobile set, and on Grandma’s new exercise bike. They had a ball. I had fun with her new machines. I need a new serger. I think I want a BabyLock 😀
I thought briefly of what I might do the next couple days with my machines missing.
At 4:20 this afternoon I returned a missed call from Birt’s Sewing Center. They had a question about replacing a needleplate or not. and…. MY MACHINES WERE READY TO GO!
How’s that for service? I was so impressed. Seriously! And I was still in the area and able to pop in quick and pick them up. I also purchased a wing needle to do some hemstitching. Oh the ideas swirling in my head. Now to find time amidst all the custom orders to be creative.
Hope your day was great. Oh yes, if you are looking to purchase a sewing machine? – I’ve got the place for you. Great machine – great service. I am over-the-moon-impressed. And my sewing table is happy and full again tonight 🙂 Tomorrow is a new day. And I have piano practice in the morning! Guess I better go spend some time with Miss Piano before I fall asleep.
