My sewing machine is currently broken! Don't know how this happened, the poor thing is probably overworked! So it has had to go to sewing machine hospital.
In the meantime and so that there is a hope of me finishing my Christmas presents in time, my lovely mother has leant me hers. The only problem is her machine scares me a little, it's very old and weighs a ton and has many more dials and stuff than mine. However I just need to suck it up and read the manual and get on with it!
Wish me luck.
