A WELL OILED MACHINE...

...I know we all feel the same - there is nothing like a smooth running sewing machine.  I can't tell you how many Saturday mornings find me rushing to get dressed in order to take a machine in for repair.  This past Saturday my main Singer was sewing pretty well, but just didn't sound right.  Since I'd planned a full day of sewing, I needed to get this checked out right away.  Mr. Baggett, my sewing machine repairman, closes promptly at 12 noon on Saturday.

I tell you - I love this man!!!

Doyle Baggett
Mr. Baggett celebrated his 80th birthday on Saturday.  We have the nicest talks, and he teach me so much.  You'd be amazed how much I don't know about a sewing machine.  He can make them purrrrr.  I told him that he just needs to fix me up a room and me and all my machines will move in with him.  I just wanted to give him some press for all he does for me....

  1. He reminds me of my late father-in-law. He could make any sewing machine hum. He taught me so much-still miss that man, he's been gone for 22 years.

  8. My fix-it man is Gary, and he comes to Jan's store on Tuesday mornings. That means I have to rush out on Saturday to drop it off so he can fix it on Tuesday. Hopefully, with this new Janome, that won't happen much.

  9. Aww that is such a nice shout-out.

    My repairman's name is Ari and that's all I know from speaking to him several times on the phone. Never met him in person, I drop my machine at Sears and get a call a week or so later from him that its ready.
