After I dropped Nic off at work this morning (he can’t drive until his vertigo gets under control) I grabbed the power cord from the sewing repair shop and came back home to check her out! So far, so good! It will take some getting used to the a few things I’ve been spoiled with–no needle threader, no automatic setting to keep the needle in the down position, no plugging in a number to rock out an easy stitch length–but I am otherwise loving her!
We moved some furniture around and got her all set up last night. I also cleaned out her stool and made myself a little ‘sewing box’ to stick under an end table for easy access to my larger tools. I think my sewing spot will be able to fairly happily coexist with the living room now! 🙂
