My lovely sister-in-law had the Janome overlocker her grandmother used. It’s not, as you might think from that statement, an antique, but a perfectly good Janome differential feed 4 thread overlocker. The darling sister-in-law in question has handed it on to live with me and get some use, with the proviso that I help out with the odd seam here and there. Noooooo problemo!
And this unexpected manna from heaven has coincided with an email from my LQS, telling me there’s a half price sale on all Simplicity patterns. I feel a spot of dressmaking coming on. Now I can go mad with knit fabrics! Now my seam edges will be pristine! Now my hems will be less bulky! Can you tell I’m a bit excited?
Husband slumps out of room, shaking head despondently… He knows it means I’ll be disappearing into my sewing room with even greater frequency. I’d feel sorry for him if I wasn’t already feeling so gleeful!
