|Drafting up the pattern onto lightweight interfacing for future use. A challenge in our small dining room!|
Then the baby woke up, she had a good run sleeping for 4 hrs so I couldn't complain. I forgot to switch off the machine... about half an hour later while I was in the lounge room I heard a noise that sounded like something fell on the floor so I thought I'd just check and to my dismay the machine was smoking!!!!!! Something had blown (hubby says maybe a transformer). I'm really peeved because I paid $100 for a service last year and the machine has be sitting idle for most of that time. Anyway, now I'm at a loss as what to do... should I take the machine for repair or just take the plunge and buy a new one (not that I can afford one at the moment anyway). It's a Singer from the 80s and the repair guy said it was in really good nick since Mum hadn't used it very much. Still I don't want to find that it'll be one thing after another that needs fixing. I still don't know how much this sewing hobby is going to interest me (I do tend to go through fads). What would you do?
