I checked and found that the part where the needle is located was bent. The needle was still intact but it was the part holding the needle that was damaged. The thickness must have been too much for poor Tiffany.
I'm off to have her checked tomorrow to see if the damage can be undone. I hope it will not cost a lot of money, otherwise, I may have to replace Tiffany. Actually, my dream sewing machine is a Bernina or a Janome but they are quite pricey for my budget. I need recommendations as to what sewing machine I should buy (if repairing Tiffany is not possible). So please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.
So, what's a girl to do without her sewing machine....well in my case, I went back to basics and started sewing with my own pudgy hands. I finally used one of my craft books and started making the Gnome Project.
Here's the little gnome ornament I made using felt and embroidery thread.
Isn't he cute? Here he is in his little forest.
And here he is with his girlfriend.
You'll probably see more handmade projects from me for a while. In the meantime, I need to know if Tiffany can be repaired. Wish me luck!
Till next time...
