Finally got her Check-Up

Okay, so is it just me or does anyone else find it extremely hard to take their sewing machine in for it's annual cleaning.  Most of the time, they tell you a week or two out.  I can't go a week or two without my sewing machine.  I find it hard to go 2 days without my sewing machine.  That probably sounds pathetic but it is true.

So . . .  On the eve of going into the hospital, I called up my local sewing machine repair shop and decided to check my little lady in.  I figure, If I am going to be in the hospital for 3-4 days then maybe I should let my sewing machine get her turn at the "sewing machine hospital".  And you can imagine how thrilled I was to find that she was ready for pick-up this morning!!!  Yippee Skippee!!  The tech said she was "very, very, very dirty", emphasizing the very's :) I figured as much, I do what I can to keep her clean but she was overdue, to say the least, for her little tune-up.

So now we are all home, me, the baby, and my other little baby :)  Welcome home Burnadette the Bernette Bernina.   I can't wait to try her out during nap time :)

Pin It!

  2. Tune_ups can be very quick or very traumatic, I'm procrastinating as well... What do you think of your Bernadette? Have you seen the black Bernadette 46? I want one just because it's so cute!

  4. I always schedule my tune-ups for vacations. Since I'm out of town, I won't need it! Sending it in while you have an adorable little baby sounds like a pretty good plan, too. :)

  7. I am the same way. The thought of spending one day without my sewing machine is painful. Recently it kinda "lit on fire" - AHHHHH It was in the shop for two weeks while they got in a new mainframe to replace the melted one! It was the longest saddest two weeks. I almost cried when I took it in to the shop and explained what happened.
    Glad you are all home. Have a great nap time!!!

  13. I hate taking my sewing machine in. Even if I'm not using it, I want it at home so I can sew if I have the urge.
