We got up this morning to snow covering the ground – not deep but the ground was covered nevertheless – ugh. The goats haven’t even adjusted yet – they’re still in the barn at noon.
Here’s my Juki 98E. I’ve had it for years and love it because it simply goes forward and backward – nothing else. It’s an industrial machine that sews very fast and it’s my first choice to use for binding.
It has a knee lift and a red thread cutter on the foot pedal. Just hit it and it cuts the thread leaving you hands free to remove the fabric. I just picked it up from the repairman because the bobbin wouldn’t wind. Come to find out the machine probably tipped over in the car at some time and the bobbin winder got bent making it inoperable. But I didn’t know that. I just now sewed some strips with it and it’s working like a charm.
Today I’m working on Bonnie Hunter’s Bitcoin again.
Meet Jessa, my new right hand tech expert! She’s a sophomore at Garner and is very knowledgeable at the computer which means she can help me load patterns into the online store and field questions from any of you. Like I told her, I can do many things but I can’t do this. She needs to make some cash for a trip to Europe next July with 500 other Iowa musical high school students. It’s a win/win for both of us and now I can Be Still.
I told her she needs to read the blog so she knows what I’m working on so please welcome Jessa to our blog family!
