Well... it's happened again, my sewing machine broke. Seriously though, what was I expecting? The poor little guy just wasn't made for what I was dishing out on almost a daily basis. Not only is the bobin tension way off, the needle is misaligned, and I've over heated the motor a few times trying to sew through things I shouldn't. So now I'm stuck with a dilemma: do I pay to repair it... over and over again or do I get a better, more durable... sigh... more expensive machine. I honestly don't have enough money to do either, and I am sick at the prospect of the former. It's like they make these machines to be thrown away every year!
So. There are four ways you can help:
1. Buy stuff from the shop to help raise money.
2. Donate money by using the button in the sidebar under "Support Craft Leftovers"
3. If you have an old machine that you don't use any more or want to upgrade, let me know and I will gladly take it off your hands.
4. Email me suggestions on machines that will hold up for a long time and can sew satin to upholstery fabric and don't cost an arm a leg.
Any support is much appreciated, even just a dollar donation is welcomed and encouraged. A dollar donated is a dollar less I have to beg my family for!
