My New Toy
This is the new serger that Tom surprised me with as a Christmas gift. I was completely blown away. After things settled down and the kids were gone, I got it out of the box. Then I looked at the instruction manual. Then I felt completely intimidated. Today I took my sewing machine in for service and took along my new serger to say "help". It's great to have the support of a sewing shop for machine service, advice, and instruction. Sally is wonderful. She showed me how to thread the machine and gave me a bit of instruction so I can at least try it out. And then I signed up for "learning your machine" classes. My first class is Saturday. Before then I will practice threading, and maybe a few simple procedures. What will I do with my new toy? That's one of the things I hope to learn. I've never had a serger before. But I do know it can save me time and effort with sewing projects. And I have a feeling I will be making some fan flags for Jake for the next Sounders season. Thankfully, Tom bought an extended warranty and service package, so if I break it, we've got it covered! Wish me luck.
