*Edit- So my machine ended up being ready much earlier than I was told. Sweeeeeeeet.
I have been putting it off for a while, but today was the day I decided to send my machine in for maintenance. It had some pretty terrifying squeaking business going on, ESPECIALLY while embroidering. So for the next week or so, I won't be able to work much on projects that require embroidery...I know! Booooooo. My old sewing machine still operates though, so I'll try to complete parts that don't require embroidery while I wait for the magical call to pick up my beloved. ;; It was totes my first time getting a machine serviced, so being told I'd be out of mine for at least a week was pretty...tear-inducing, haha. But they're going to clean, lubricate, tighten what ever needs to be adjusted, and other things I cant do myself so it's for the best! D:
(Next year? Seeing about scheduling a same-day service).
