Bummer Day

I am pouting today.
I successfully broke my sewing machine.

Not just any machine. The machine I paid way too much money for in a very weak moment, thinking how cool the embroidery attachment was.
Have I EVER used it?

I can fix most machines, most of the time.
This time, I think I really did something good or not so good to it.

Call the Sewing Machine Doctor right away!!!

I have 2 extra machines if you wanna borrow one. I would curl up in fetal position and mold if my machine was really broken.

I might not use mine everyday infact it might go a week before the dust cover comes off. BUT it's vital to my chi to know that if I wanted to I could. :) When my prima dona sewed her last stitch I made up my mind I was going to replace her with a non-complaining
work horse with as few electronic parts as possible. The humidity and salt air can do some really mean things!! :)

I'll think possitive thoughts that you'll have her up and running sooner then later!!

I actually got my own sewing maching out for the first time in years. And you know me -- I DO NOT sew.

I am so sorry...Let's pray for a miracle. I hope you can repair it, I love that design that you shared.

P.S. I gave a lecture on blogging and etsy last week at something called Salon Night in Salem, Ma. My printer who creates my giclee's hosts a monthly event for artists. This one was on networking. I brought my wonderful calendar and talked about the Red Party and the foundation. Hopefully, they will begin to blog. Thank you again.

Hey Terisa I am sooooo excited for your cover shot! You better get your machine back in business baby! I can't wait to finally do a class.I think we should do one just for fun! xoxo Sheri DeBow


I know the feeling. I broke my new serger soon after I got it. The good thing is . . . they can be repaired. It's not the end of the world. It's just a little cloudy today.

You will be back to creating wonders before you know it.

Oh, so sorry to hear this. I know how I feel when my own (used to be) Fancy Dancy machine winds up that the hospital.

I hope it's nothing too serious, or expensive. :(

I killed mine too. It is at the electric hospital as I am writing this. I am using a very old one to get me through but I am without for a couple of weeks. I hope you can get it fixed.

What is it with sewing machines! Every time I use my sewing machine I end up breaking a needle!I know it's the tension! But it's been one of my things I have always done since I was 10 years old ha ha! I now always sit with a packet of them next to my machine and expect to break one as part of my routine ha ha! Now I don't get worried about it any more! Hope you get your machine fixed and I love your blog page :-) Kat the hat lady from UK
