Terrible pun, but there you go. I have just bought a new sewing machine – an industrial Bernina which should stand up to the heavy work better than my domestic. I am really excited about the machine, but I wont actually be able to use it for a while. I can’t pick it up til next week and I doubt I can realistically fit it in at the moment, so it will go into temporary storage until I have bigger workspace. It was just too good a deal to resist, and just a few minutes away from me. Reports tomorrow from my week’s teaching, and watch out for a tutorial next week on putting a zip into a handbag-lining, as promised for some students!
