Yeah, so there is just no rest for the weary, is there? Three weeks ago I started working part-time in my friend’s sewing machine shop. He called me desperate for help and he’s always so generous with me that I couldn’t say no! My first mission was to organize and clean up the front of the store. Now I’ve moved to the back of the store (the Graveyard, as I like to call it) and am pulling out goodies to sell. His father started as a Singer dealer back in 1967 and later added Bernina so there is a lot of cool stuff that needs to go. Today, I opened up an Ebay store for him and started listing the Bernina accessories. Then I’m moving on to super-cool vintage accessories. Wait until you see the mint-condition, never-used Singer monogrammer we found! I have a feeling I might be adding to my collection while I’m at it…I’ve already snagged a mint Singer buttonholer that will be modified to fit my Featherweight. I just love me some round-end buttonholes!
Go to the Azar’s Sewing Ebay store and bookmark us! And, if you’re in need of any vintage parts or accessories send us a message – chances are we have what you need somewhere in the back room.
We’ll be going back to our regularly scheduled programming on Saturday. Having a holiday is just not worth it because I have to cram five days worth of work into 4! I just roll my eyes when my company calls it a Paid Holiday – it damn well better be since I’m still doing the same amount of work. Just makes me laugh that they think it’s a perk – I guess if you are the receptionist it is because there is no catch-up recepting to do when you get back.
