Wehhh. (Sewing machine woes)
I have three sewing machines at home (and one in my other house in the province, so that makes four). How in the world did I manage to get ALL three machines broken when I have a deadline? My Juki industrial has a sticky pedal and WON'T stop even after I take my foot off it. Instead it accelerates until I pull the plug out. I have never seen how fast my Juki can go until yesterday afternoon. I nearly sewed on my hand, almost had a heart attack because of the frightening roar it made accelerating when the pedal got stuck and it absolutely destroyed the chiffon and satin I was stay-stitching. @$%#$%^ it's so hard to cut chiffon and satin!!! My white and vintage Singer have timing issues so they're pretty useless as well.
So! I shall call the repairman tomorrow and have them come on Wednesday. Then when everything is fixed, I'm going to sew in peace and it's going to be ZEN.
