Q: One of the most frequent questions I get from my readers is, “What sewing machine do you use?”
A: The kind of machine I sew on is far less interesting a story than how I came across it. You see, there was a time (not so long ago) when I didn’t sew. Not only did I not sew, I had no idea how to sew. I was in a rut, folks. :/ I needed a creative outlet. I kept talking about getting a sewing machine and learning how to use it. “Ugh…but it’s too expensive!” and “What if I’m not any good at it?” and “What if I just lose interest?” were my three best excuses for not following through with my dream.
Thankfully, my boyfriend at the time (now good friend and all-around swell guy), Alex got sick and tired of listening to my excuses. One day, he showed up at the door of my apartment with this:
You’re looking at the . This is the machine I learned to sew on years ago, and the machine I still use to this day.
Sometimes I think about how different my life would be if Alex hadn’t provided the push I needed by giving me such a wonderful present. This blog might have never happened. I might not be nearly as happy and fulfilled a person as I am today.
I’ve decided, that much like the plot to a terribly sappy movie…
