New tires and sewing machine bummer
Thursday, February 28, 2013
Finally took the plunge and decided on which tires to get. Had them mounted tonight so that is done. Hubby will be all set in case we get another snowfall. Went for some nice Michllen tires. Spendier, but will be worth it for the better ride we felt.
So that's where the evening was spent. Before that went to get my sewing machine where it was being repaired. Bummer, the repair part and labor for the presser foot motor was more than the machine is worth now- it is that old. Spent over $2500 for the machine over 12 years ago and it is worth around $250 or so now before they found what was wrong with it. I have another smaller basic sewing machine they checked out for me too and that one is fine. Since my fancy one isn't worth anything on trade broken, and it cost $250 to repair, why bother? So I told them to keep it and use it for parts or dispose of it. Am not sewing much now, not like I used to, so the smaller one should work just fine for doing small repairs and stuff.
