Over the weekend, MrBeans accompanied me to my local sewing machine shop while I picked up some supplies. Digging around for gift ideas, he asked me if there’s anything I might like. Without hesitating, and possibly subliminally prompted by the one in front of me, I said, “A serger, of course!”
Of course I want a serger; what sewista is complete without one? Though, I don’t need one. But by some total twist of uncanny fate, day one of a two day serger class was being held in the shop at that very moment. Quickly drawn into the classroom by the friendly shop keepers, I was instantly immersed into a garment making frenzy and the latest and greatest trends in sergers. Maybe I do need one…
Then, once I saw how the Baby Lock sergers magically thread themselves, it was a no brainer. I had to have one!
If it wasn’t for the voice of reason (aka MrBeans,) I would have swept that bad boy up into my arms and taken it home with all the extras and goodies only available for the limited time special weekend price of $$$$. $$$$! Falling off of cloud 9, I realized I really don’t need one, now.
So tonight, while dreaming of sergers, I enjoyed embroidering another cute, little onesie.
