Three things that... kinda... go together.
I have kept my promise to myself to do SOMETHING costume related everyday. It just wasn't all that much yesterday (had auroraceleste mark the top line of the overskirt. And that's all. Well, short of doodling at work to come up with a decorative pattern for the sleeves.)



Watched two disks (8 episodes) of Fate/Stay Night. OMG, what a place to stop. Want MORE. I do hope this isn't a series that never actually ends.... But... why the heck did Our Hero (really, he should be a Servant with his attitude and reflexes, not a Master. Amusing, though.) suddenly stop worrying about the Master that wants to suck the life out of everyone at the school? A little talk and *poof* it's like that spell never existed. :( I suppose I will just *HAVE* to watch the rest. Oh, darn. The fact that all the Servants are Calm, Cool and Compentent ALL THE TIME (while the other characters go all anime on us at times) doesn't hurt my feelings at all.





When I broke the needle on the serger, I bend the holy heck out of the 'finger' in the base plate, too, it seems. *sigh*. Now, do I see about getting that fixed, or remind myself this was a 'training' serger to decide if I wanted a 'real' one. Because I really do like using a serger. I probably ought to look into buying one. But I really only need a simple one that works well. Does such exist?

Oh yeah. Have you looked at Singer's website? As strange as this sounds, some fabric andsewing store actually sell refurb'd equipment. Do some talking to the people over at JoAnn's fabrics, see what they say. Or you could Google refurb'd surger and see what comes up.

If you want to set a day to go serger shopping together, I'm your girl.

I was actually thinking of seeing what's local today, before heading to auroraceleste's for more beading. You up for that? Or maybe Thursday? Short of borrowing time on someone else's, I kind of need a new one soonish.

Are you in town today? I didn't take a lunch yesterday, so I could take a long one today if you wanted to go by Bob's Bernina and Lawrence Vac & Sewing (all they have are Janome).

I need a new one yesterday.

Oh, crap. Nevermind. I already have plans to stop by radcliffe's tonight. For some reason I thought you meant during the day. I don't think either Lawrence place is open past 5 or so.

You are likely right about the timing of the shops closing. booger, because it means we likely can't go together (I can get back to town before they close, but you don't get off work that early. And I have Thomas this weekend.) This makes me sad. :( I seriously doubt your lunch break can be long enough to come to the JoAnn's on Metcalf, can it?

Nope, sorry! Boy I'd love it if it did, though. Good luck shopping. Lemme know what you find.

Give Missouri Sewing Machine (downtown: 471-1276) a call. They have used sergers, plus incredible service. If you talk to Curt or Jeff, tell them William Morris referred you.

Follow-up/additional thought: if you can, buy your new machine from a place that offers both sales and service - like Mo. Sewing Machine. With respect to ChernobylRed, Jo-Ann's sells and they have reasonably good equipment, but I don't believe they do their service in-house.

A very definite point, which is why I was thinking of browsing the two sewing machine service places here in town.
