I've been remiss. There is someone dear to me who I have never introduced to you. I speak of her occasionally, but never by name.
So here she is.
Meet my machine: Janome Decor 3018.
We first met - by chance - four years ago. After a brief flirtation in a shop, I bought her home and did some unspeakable things to her. Then put her in a cupboard. We renewed our acquaintance periodically, but always in the company of others. People who understood her better. Then last year I learnt to sew and we've been inseparable since.
She has served me well through all manner of projects. What her manual has lacked in explanation, her computerised stitches have made up for in simplicity. We're steadfast friends.
Do you sew? What's the story of your machine? Would you like to show it off ?
