Sad news: my sewing machine is in the shop. I've been without it for 4 days and I'm having some sort of of sewing withdrawal depression. :)
The good news is that my machine comes home tomorrow! It's been 8 years since I've had the machine serviced, and so I thought it time to take care of that.
How often do you all take your machines to a shop for cleaning, oiling, adjusting? How often is necessary? Do you do your own machine servicing? Yes, I clean and oil my machine regularly, but lately something about the tension has been "off." After 8 years, it was time for a tune-up!
These two tops for my daughters were made last week when I still had my machine. Both are from Ottobre, and both are made from the same lightweight jersey knit fabric.
