Back at it!

I've been on an unintentional sewing break when I just couldn't seem to get my serger working after one of the spools became tangled and broke.  


It took several attempts and days at re-threading to get it back to serging form. You don't realize how much you rely on a piece of equipment until it's out of commission for awhile.  Of course, I could have managed and finished Vogue 9367 without serging the remainder of the seam edges.  The coat is almost finished and I was working on the hems which could have easily been finished with seam binding.  

This dry spell in the sewing room made me wish that there was a place where you could rent a serger.  Lending libraries are popping up across the country and you can stop by and use a sewing machine.  But no serger.  

I'm just glad it's working.  I missed sewing on this little machine.  Now to go back to work on the coat.  Before I head back to work on this project I'm curious.  Has anyone used a lending library for any sewing equipment?  What did you think of the experience?   

Happy Sewing!

  1. We have a few places that allow you to rent time on machines. I'm not sure about sergers though. I do remember wanting to do so with a coverstitch and had no luck.

    It's really a great idea though! Hopefully more places will pop up!

    1. Yes, I agree. Hmmm, possible business idea?

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

How to Celebrate?   Treat your machine to some tender loving care.  Maybe your sewing machine has some lint that could use some clea...
