I think this person has a serging machine, don't you?
I have so many funny thoughts running thru my mind right now!
ie. My aunt hiding hot beer in her washing machine so her husband would never know that she drank!!! Yes she would do a lot of laundry and she was always SO happy to do so!!!
Hot Beer????? Yuck! Well yuck for any beer!!
I was also thinking of my mother who called me about a year ago and asked me what kind of serging machine I had.
I seriously had a flash go thru my mind of my mother sitting in her sewing room pulling her hair out and maybe sipping something strong from a flask with a cute vintage sewing machine on it.....all because the thread had broke on her serger and she was trying to rethread it in the proper way one thread at a time in a particular order!!!!!
All the while cursing ME with every breathe while hiccupping between curse words and sips!!!!
But.........being the good daughter that I am I thought everyone should endure that experience at least a couple hundred times in their life so I told her to go for it and she purchased a nice Singer serger like one of mine!
I recieved a call from her last week with a question about her serger.......I just about fell out of my chair when she started the conversation that way, thinking to myself...."Oh No she caught on to why I talked her into buying a serger...."
Actually all was good and she wasn't too very upset with the threading. She said that she was always very patient and took her time to make sure she threaded it in the proper order.
Like me she doesn't have to do that very often.
However if something does go wrong.....such as your 4 year old grandson has a temper tantrum and gets mad at you and decides to "work" on your sergers tension.........you WILL start drinking something very strong from a flask in your sewing room and not care whether your husband finds out or not!!!
This comes from me getting ready to bite the bullet and scale down and sell some of my 27 sewing machines. OK So I have now told the whole world about my decision and therefor I will be held accountable for doing just that now!
I collect them.
I love them. Even after sitting for hours on end trying to readjust the tensions post tantrum.
By the way they are all running very very smoothly at this time!!
Colton decided that he probably shouldn't "Work" on my machines any more.
(When Leslie got a used machine that I picked up at a yardsale for her and was having some difficulty getting it to sew, Colton told her that he could fix it cause he "always worked on Granny's"........OMG!!!!!!!!)
It is like cutting off my right arm....my arm used to turn up the flask.....
to get rid of a sewing machine.
It brings tears to my eyes to just speak of such nonsense.
I mean really?
I bought each and every one of them with a purpose in mind.
I know I know I have a lot of them that do the exact same jobs.......
Please wish me luck and pray for me to get thru this.
I do not want to have to go back to etsy and buy this flask and use it while sitting in my sewing room mourning the loss of one of my machines!
Actually it is soooooooo cute that I may just have to start drinking anyway!!
So if you miss me for a few days, I will either be in the sewing room taking lots of pictures for ebay or in the sewing room in the corner muttering words and hiccupping .............
If anyone needs a sewing machine or serger let me know what you need and I just might have it.....sorry no long arm quilting machines.
