A New Brother!

No, my parents don’t have some sort of sordid past…It is what I got in the mail yesterday!

It is a Brother serger, and I am so excited! When Briggs was sick this past weekend I had a lot of time to surf the web and read all sorts of reviews. I wasn’t even thinking of buying a serger anytime soon, but it was so affordable and great reviews were all I saw so I talked it over with Ben and he got online and bought it for me. He knows I have a major issue spending money on something that I don’t really need so he helped me out and just did it. Otherwise he knew it would be on my brain for weeks. So far I did spend about an hour this morning trying to thread the lower looper, but I think I finally got it and now just have some minor tweaking with the tension. Other than that, it has been easy to use. And BTW, I ordered it from a major retailer that “rolls back” prices and shipping was only $.97 and I got it in 3 days! I was impressed-I had never ordered online from them before. Anyway, from now on, my seams will be finished. Hooray!



  1. I am so excited for you and your new purchase!! I pretend I sew vicariously through you because one of these days I will be able to make some fun stuff that I see- I have always wanted to use one of those because they are the key to some really fun stuff. Have fun with it!!!

  2. How exciting!! I really want to get a sewing machine...I guess first I need to learn to sew though. :) Do you have any recommendations?

  3. Can't wait to see your creations!

  4. SO Jealous!!! My mom used to have one and I loved it! I don't sew enough to justify it :( ENJOY!

  5. Ooh, can't wait to hear how it works! Yet another reason we would get along well...I need my husband to just make purchases for me too because I can never seem to do it, even when I want something really bad! :)

    Have fun!
