A few weeks ago we had a sewing class and made it a work class so everyone could get caught up on projects and put finishing touches on some of them. As I was helping one of my fabulous students another called to me and said "Hey Kara, I need your help with this over here!" I turned around to see a HUGE box on the table. Secretly my students paid off the rest that I owed on the machine that I put on layaway. I have been saving for a new machine for 5 years, so it is a really big deal to me. I'm not going to say that I didn't cry, but not too much....just enough for dramatic purposes (yeah right Kara!) Now I can finally do all the things I need to cause I have a machine that can sew fast, acurately and does what I need to without ripping my fabric! Thanks gals you rock!
