Sew Woe Is Me!

Last week I had the sew woes.
I'm sure you know what I mean.
My sweet machine,
we'll call him Ken
decided to up and quit working.

Now granted,
I hadn't taken really good care of him.
I've had him a long time and I use him A LOT!
But still,
up and quit.
So I searched and called
and finally found someone I thought I could trust Ken to.

He had the right name!
Hee, Hee. 
Actually, his name is Larry.

And I must say, he took a look at Ken
and said, "Let's clean him up!"

And he may have done some other things too.
(He did! Calibration)
And now Ken is home,
Looking all spiffy. 
And working like a dream.

Thank you so much Mr. Sew (& Vac)
If you are in the Phoenix area:

Mr. Sew & Vac
3230 E. Bell Road, Phoenix 85032

Now Ken has a 1 year warrenty
and I'm all set to start working on a jacket for grandson, 
not to mention finish up on some other projects I'm working on.

Thanks again, Larry! 
You are amazing.


  1. Isn't it amazing what a little maintainence does? I wish I had good sewing ability. I have so many projects I would get involved in. I have two different fabrics here to make aprons and a bunch of burlap for other projects! I hope you post about the jacket. I would love to see it! Have a good week! Anne

  2. I ave just recently started sewing again, after many years absence. My hubs cleaned up my 34 year old machine and it seems to be humming along. I am working on 4 aprons right now for friends, family and swaps..oh machine don't fail me!
    Can't wait to see your finished projects and glad Ken is humming along now!

  3. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyy for Larry and Ken! :):):):):):):):):):) My Bertha and your Ken should have a playdate! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  4. I had one of those moments and experience with my sewing machine too. I brought my in for the malfunctioned bobby pin, turns out it's just a simple replacement...

  5. Wishing you and Ken a fantastic fabulous creative time together! Looking forward to seeing your works...
    I threw two notes with your name on it in the big giveaway bowl, fingers crossed!
    Have a happy happy Tuesday, say hi to Ken :)

  6. Well I can definitely relate to this post. I'm in the middle of a huge sewing project. Making a linen duvet and euro shams and more pillows etc... My machine up and broke today TOO. I have to load it up and ship it off tomorrow. It's going to take a couple weeks to get back. It's a really old singer, but I love it. Hope they can fix it!


Thank you for stopping by. I treasure each and every word, so please leave one or two.
