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?

  3. It's too bad your public library doesn't have one. Ours has 3 regular machines but no serger.... yet. I have my fingers crossed for one someday.

  4. Interesting idea. Sewing machines in libraries? Not in US. At least I haven't see any. Humm!Canada? Another reason to love Canadians.
    Thanks for sharing
