Yesterday was 1st November ,lock down finished.Less than a half an hour after the shop opened,I was there to pick up my embroidery machine which had been stuck there for nearly 5 months.I was taking no chances that the rules wouldn't be changed again & again, as they have been since I left it there to be fixed because it kept on saying it needed a rest.The problem was a lead costing $38,well it has had a good rest & now it is going to work.

Machine is now set up ready to sew,might have to check the manual out,at times

Hi Judy, so glad you got your machine back, it's horrible when that happens.
Thankfully the part wasn't too expensive to repair and I'm sure you'll be back sewing away really quickly. Love Chris

P.S. Are you still doing your beautiful beadw

Welcome home Machine! As others have said, don't try to do it all at once. Just pace yourself and have fun.

That had to have been so frustrating! It is like riding a bike - you'll get into a project and will remember everything you knew. Have fun!! Hugs, Laura

Don't feel like you have to get five months worth caught up in two weeks! Have fun, but ease back in.
