I got a sewing machine!!

25 Jul

I finally got a sewing machine!!!!!!!

Craigslist to the rescue. Yesterday I met a nice lady in the parking lot of the nearby Michael’s and gave her my hard earned money for a brand new brother Project Runway Limited Edition sewing machine! 😀


This video of a young woman opening up her sewing machine (Exact same machine) is basically how happy I was:

Last night I went to the brother sew and vac which just happens to be minutes from my house and purchased machine oil because I (#1, read the instruction manual!) and want to treat my baby right! MMM! I was so excited to start playing and learning and messing up and learning what to do and what not to do.20120726-094644.jpg

It’s like buying your first pair of golf clubs and now you’re ready to hit the green! I have so many little sewing projects in my head. Number one is learning how to take in clothes since I’ve lost 12 pounds and none of my pants or skirts fit anymore. Yay running!

I also took a second beginner sewing class a couple weeks ago where I learned even more than in my first class. The Silver Spring Sewing Society holds sewing classes at the Wheaton Library. It was only $20 for a beginner sewing class, plus $5 machine rental (but I won’t have to pay that anymore!!) The instructor covered machines, techniques, measuring ourselves, reading patterns and more! I will definitely be meeting up with these ladies in the future!


Our super cute professor!


We learned how to properly measure ourselves, and each other.


Group shot! What a great class.
