Last week, my little Bernina minimatic developed a tic… she started dropping stitches.
Her belts had been slipping for a while, and she struggled to get through rolled seam allowances, but I made allowances because, after all, she is 40 years old, and not as spry as she once was. I also had never taken her in for a tuneup after I bought her at an estate sale.
So we took her to Sew Much More, our local Bernina dealer* and they said they’d give her a tune up, and that it usually cost $80 and would take three weeks.
Three. Weeks. Without. A. Sewing. Machine.
I didn’t have *that* much handwork to keep me busy!
I would’ve freaked out, if Mister and I hadn’t had a conversation that prepared me for this long wait. More to come on that…
So now, we have a little green suitcase that sits empty, waiting for little Hilde to come home.
*Everytime I hear “dealer” I get tickled…we’re addicts, I tell you!
