My sewing machine died. It was 1:30 a.m. and it just quit. Kaput. Now what? I have a million Chistmas presents to make, and no money to have the machine fixed. Crappity crap crap.

I am thinking of what y’all suggested, but am unsure how to tell you about my husbands job needs without giving out too much personal information… I will continue to ponder. Thanks

  1. Send out a note to your quilter’s group and Relief Society. I’m sure a dozen women have an extra machine lying around that they NEVER use. I do, and if I lived near you, you could have it on indefinite loan. These things collect dust for most of us . . . !

  2. Ditto to what Deborah said. How about putting a note on the bulitin board at church? I know that the other ward that meets in that building has TONS of ladies with sewing machines they’d be willing to lend. I can think of 5 off the top of my head right now.

  3. De-lurking to say…

    Actually, most wards (RS’s) should have at least one if not two machines for just this very reason. Give the president a call and see what they have.


  4. Can I repeat what the first three ladies said? 🙂

    I could certainly do without mine at least during the Christmas season, and imagine there must be several around your ward and perhaps in the church, like meemee noted.

  5. If you are coming down to the Bay Area, you can have mine as long as you want it. Heaven knows it just collects dust around here.

  6. Crappity crap, rhymes with yakkity yak, and now I cannot get that song out of my head!

    That is horrible news Tracy. Okay. Now will you please place a ChipIn badge on your site to ask for contributions to fix your frickin’ sewing machine? Enough is enough!

  7. Tracy, I say you put a button on your blog and let your friends help you out. I have been reading for a long time and can so feel for your situation. So many people love and care for you. Let them help-

  8. I hope you can find a temp machine! You might be able to barter with your local sewing machine dealer for a repair after the holidays. If I was at home I would be happy to loan you mine, but alas its been sitting by its little self at home without me for the last 6 months. 😦

  9. What’s a Chip In badge? That sounds dangerously close to asking people for money….

    The good news: At quilt group tonight, I got some suggestions of people who can repair it. One shop even gives you a loaner while they have yours. I also dug out my old klunker, and while it’s light is broken, and a lot of the buttons don’t work, I think I can get it to sew a straight line… so, all hope is not lost.

    What is great is knowing how many of you care about me, and how many of you have de-lurked to say so. Thank you!
