Introducing My Sewing Partner….

Let me introduce my sewing partner (of sorts!) without whom none of this would be possible. Yep, I’m talking about my sewing machine – an Elna 5100. I love this machine! I started off with a Singer Inspiration which only lasted  few months (boo hoo). When I took it to get repaired, I was told it wasn’t even worth repairing and that I was better off to get a new machine otherwise I’d just find myself in the same place. You get what you pay for, I guess. I was also told I’d have to spend at least $500 (silent scream) to get a decent machine that would last  and to go either Janome/Elna (same company) or Brother. I left the shop feeling very sad :(.

Lucky for me DH was on the case and he managed to find a second-hand (hardly used) Elna off Gumtree which he got for me just in time for Mother’s Day! ❤

It’s an absolute dream to sew with. I love love love it!

Ready, Set, Sew!

Hello. I am Josie. I am a novice sewer. I’ve recently discovered sewing and the wonderful world of sewing blogs. This is just my little contribution. Here I plan to document my sewing projects – triumphs and failures (hopefully more triumphs than failures!)
