Why is it that before sewing was what you did if you could not afford to buy your clothes? It worked out cheaper. Now you need to have money to sew. Seems like it has gone from something you did out of necessity to something you do for a expensive hobby.
Before you even begin to look at material, which is not cheap, you need to buy a sewing machine – holy crap! You can buy a lap top cheaper – in fact my first car was cheaper! And I was not even looking at the top of the range, more like middle to bottom.
I have been lucky enough to use my mom’s old sewing machine but figured if I am going to be sewing this much I really should get my own. So today when I took it in for a service I asked for quotes. Lets put it this way – my mom is not going to be getting her machine back for a quite a while.
What I have decided I am going to try and do is put the money I get from selling my Whachumacallits into a “Sewing Machine Fund” it was supposed to be my “I’m going ½ day Fund” but looks like that is going to have to wait.
