My 4-Spooled Dreams

by tatiana on September 9, 2008

I seem to have misinformed myself. I hate it when that happens. For over a year I’ve been putting off getting a serger (also known as an overlock machine) because of my misconception that the average machine would put me out about a thousand big ones. Turns out, this was a pretty inaccurate estimate.

This is a serger.

I found this little guy on sale for $269.99 on the Joanns website. And hey! Is that Martha Stewart I see smiling there on the page endorsing this machine? I think it is. Am I sold? Not quite yet. I currently have a Singer sewing machine, and my mom has my Babunia’s ancient Singer sewing machine from the old days. I still think we should take that thing to Antiques Roadshow. That would be so much fun. But anyway, that was a little beside my point. I’m a pretty loyal Singer customer, as my machine has done me well for the past 3 years. (Knocks on wood). The crazy old ladies in my sewing class last year seemed to have issues about my machine, saying that their Husqvarna and Bernina machines were superior. But my stance is this: the tools you use don’t matter as much as what you are able to create with them. And frankly, their crap was not any better than my crap. So there you go.

I’m going to be moving soon, so I think I will get a little more serious about this purchase in a month or so.

In other news, and in anticipation of moving, I have been giving more thought to the current decoration scheme in my apartment. Which is totally a joke because there is none. (Enter pre-recorded studio audience laughter here). In efforts to make my apartment a place I love to be (more than I already do), I think I’m going to fill my share of the space with photography by my two favorite Etsy photographers:

Tatiana help support my art and help me with my sewing machine! Mine broke and I thought it would be cheaper to steal the unused one at my mom’s than fix mine… except uhhh… I can’t thread it to make my elementary ridiculous non-functional creations (hat for scooter my doggy)!! -_-

p.s. how’s the new job?

Thanks Tati! That would be awesome… I realized I’m silly and should also probably just try the company website! Updates on my inadequacy as they occur! :)
