my sewing machine and i have been fighting the last week or so. the tension is off and I haven't been able to fix it. ugh...it's quite frustrating. i called the viking store today to ask for some guidance and the repair guy said that it sounded like he should look at it. so i trudged to Boise with both kids and my sewing machine....for him to fix in exactly 30 seconds. he said it was in need of a tune up, but that it would take a week. like i can live without my machine for a week!! so i said, 'thank you,' and took it home with me anyway. despite our fight, I have made these few things over the last week. but they are far from perfect since my machine has been acting crazy.
