I really thought I had everything in a sewing machine I could ever want--until I met my Pfaff. (sound of harps and angels singing).
She didn't seem to have much personality. So I tried to think of her as just a tool, like a rotary cutter or a seam ripper. I pieced on my favorite machines, and did the quilting with the Pfaff.
I wasn't supposed to fall in love with her. But, like Marlene Dietrich, I cahn't help it.
I am almost embarrassed to write this next part (and I should be!). All along I have been following the instructions I got from the guy who sold me the Pfaff. I clean and oil the rotary hook area after every other bobbin change. I unplug the machine when I'm not using it so she won't have a power surge. BUT--last night was the first time I changed the needle since I bought the machine! (face plant) I just didn't even think of it. I have quilted LOTS of quilts with this same needle. And this wonderful piece of German engineering just kept making beautiful stitches.
So that seals it. I'm in love. And now of course I've got an earworm of Marlene Dietrich that just won't go away.
I hope you're enjoying good weather this week. We certainly are!
Make time for sewing. It's worth it.
