Out for a Tune-Up
Years ago…before the knitting, before the spinning, before the embroidery, before the weaving… I sewed. The only thing I did was sew. I took sewing classes from beginner to advance making a suit even shirts with matching plaids. Then I moved onto pattern making even able to make a pattern with just a string and finally I had skirts that really fit correctly.
In the heyday of this sewing phase, I was gifted by my folks this Pfaff Varimatic 6091 and since the mid-90’s it’s been traveling around with me. About 7 years ago I decided it needed a cleaning and tune-up and took it to a Pfaff dealer. Well fast forward and in the spring I found the pressure foot was sticky. I took the cover off with the light bulb and found the grease turned to glue. Hmmm… well, it’s time for another cleaning, tune-up and a basic factory reset – so it’s flying off today to the Pfaff TN service center to be worked on by their trained professionals. They said I should see it back in a month. I guess they have a little backlog going. I have a little sewing to do, so I’ll be anxiously waiting to get her back.
