The Story of My Serger
Oh yes. I own a serger now & yes there is a good story behind it. Last month, just after we'd decided to move quickly to Las Vegas but before news had really spread that we were moving or why, my super dear friend Maria came for a visit. She said that she had an early birthday gift for me & wanted to bring it by. So when she & another friend Terri showed up with a rather large box, I was a bit confused. I opened the attached card & learned that this gift was from 13 awesome ladies & friends that I know from church. They had all pitched in to give me this serger! When I opened the box & saw it, I cried.
Whenever a holiday or birthday comes up, Dylan will ask me what I want. I always say "nothing". Then he asks me what I would want if money was no factor & I always say "a serger".
I cannot believe that these sweet ladies would do this for me. Little ol' me! I love this machine & I've already used it lots. I was so happy to have it to finish off the satin capes for my girls' Halloween costumes. What a mess they would have been without my serger! I am so grateful to Maria for the time she put into hunting this machine down & then for arranging for the group effort in purchasing it. And I am so thankful for all the dear friends that pitched in. They seriously made a little dream of mine come true.
Which reminds me...I have about a hundred thank you cards that I need to write. Which also reminds me...we have some new printable fabric stash note cards in the shop. Pay for the download once & then print them as many times as you need them!
