A Forced Breather

Hi everyone what a day I have had.  Last night my dog Sammy skidded across the floor of my sewing area and got himself under my sewing table.  He got a bit of a fright and charged out again taking both my beloved Bernina machines with him.  Thankfully Sammy was completely unhurt but both sewing machines are broken and will need to be repaired or replaced. This is going to coast thousands.  Normally this wood be a costly headache in Scotland where I had my trusty sewing engineer that I could send my machines to in Edinburgh but here in Guernsey it is turning into a logistical nightmare.  There is no reliable sewing machine engineer on the island and so I have to take the machines on the 3 hour ferry myself to the nearest bernina engineer and then collect them when they are fixed. So that's 4 x 3hs on the boat plus driving.   I have been exploring other options regarding borrowing a machine or indeed buying a very cheap and nasty machine, neither of these options are goers.  So as of the moment until I can sort this big mess out ( this may take a while) I will only be selling what I have in stock.

Hope you are all having a better day than me.


  1. Oh no! Glad that Sammy is okay but so sad that both machines are broken. ((hugs))

  2. Thanks Cindy Sammy is his usual self and I am so grateful for that it could have been so much worse. I much prefer this problem than one that I couldn't work with. It has been a funny couple of days and I have been keeping my hands busy with some hand quilting which is so relaxing . Hopefully I won't be without a machine for too long.
