Okay, not brand spanking new. More like vintage, built-like-a-tank, and can't-believe-it-works new sewing machine!
I'm so thrilled to have this one, it needs a little tender lovin' care and a new sewing machine needle but other than that, it's perfect.
It came with attachments, extra bobbins, and working light bulbs. Bonus!
The buttonhole feature is what has me over-the-moon excited because I can make it any length of buttonhole that I want, squeal!
I have a button that I've wanted to put on the cream coloured jacket I made a few years ago. I couldn't because the automatic buttonhole foot for my Janome machines wasn't able to accommodate the size of the button. I have some big plans for this machine.
It almost makes me forget how I got a 30% discount on it as well.
The clerk at the cash asked if I were a senior because it was senior's day.
Sarcastically, I answered, "yes" thinking that I would be asked for identification. And then an apology would occur. But I wasn't asked for identification. [insert moment of
shock denial.] If I weren't so excited about the sewing machine, I would have been horrified. Today was the first time that someone had questioned if I was older than I actually am. And it was the second time today. This morning someone asked if I were retired while waiting for my car. Not exactly a great day for the ego. Maybe I need to start wearing make-up when I go out in the public sphere? Thankfully, it was a much better day for sewing machine shopping.
