Apology no 1. Sorry for having neglected the blog so badly recently. I;ve had a lot of personal stuff going on that some people are aware of, and I got my sewjo back but no blogjo (I think I might have made up a word...). So I have a pile of stuff to show you!
Apology no 2. Sorry for all of you who were expecting something far more exciting from my "I'm so excited" deliberate teaser (erm, OK, computer cock up!). I had a few emails about it ranging from being a contestant on the new series of Sewing Bee, to pregnancy! Sadly (actually not sadly - both of those are terrifying!) neither are true!
As the #sewcialists on Twitter know, I got a work bonus and decided to put it towards an overlocker (or serger, as it may be called round your neck of the woods!).
I went for the much loved and well reviewed Brother 1034D and I am very happy with it so far!
It makes everything look so real! Even hubby commented on how good it looks, and can't believe how quickly things come together when you can finish the seams with this.
Would recommend if you are looking for a reasonably priced overlocker.
But I do have a question for you knowledgeable lot - do you sew the whole seam on your overlocker, or sew the seam on your machine and just finish the edges on the overlocker?
Ooh, and check back here tomorrow - I'm hosting a giveaway of Simplicity patterns, so try your luck!
