In my quest to find a backup machine I went to the sewing machine repair man, Henry, 85, who is selling off his stock and will stick to just repairing machines. He didn't have my hoped for machine so he sent me off to the big dealer Ready Set Sew
I had never heard of this shop and WOW! was I surprised to see what they had. It has everything, except my hoped for used machine. But it has everything else one would want in a sewing machine shop.
Including fabric! And a top notch classroom.
You know I am totally retired, but the offer to teach in such a classroom, equipped with a digital projector, and a camera that shows the teachers hands as she demos, and throws the picture on the big screen for the students, is teaching heaven. I am hooked, like a big wriggly fish.
The owner's name is Melanie, and she is often called Melody, and vice versa. We immediately hit it off, and began to make plans. She may be attending the Modern Quilt guild meeting next Saturday, so we'll chat again.
I am so lucky to have a great yarn shop, a great quilt shop and a great sewing shop, all within an hour's drive from here in the boonies. Yay!!!
