Sunday sewing

Last week I took a two day class on servicing Pfaff and Husqvarna Viking sewing machines at the SVP headquarters in Drammen.  I brought my Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0 in to practice on, and I was horrified by all the lint trapped inside my machine..... The pile you see on the right side of the machine is just a small part of it.  I also adjusted the thread tension, and now my machine sews like a dream again!  

So I have been sewing a little bit this week- here's a little peek at the lid I am making for a purse- I hope to finish it today before Ola's soccer game this afternoon.
Have a wonderful Sunday!


  1. Nice peek!
    Will you be servicing sewing machines for clients? You are so clever!

    I clean my machine every two weeks, but I’m sure inside is a messy amount of lint!

  2. It would be great to be able to take your machine apart for cleaning - the amount of lint that gets in is amazing!

  3. Sounds like a worthwhile course...will you do house calls?

  4. Hey there,scarey all that lint, I am sure mine has a pile. Love to see your posting,I know your a busy gal! Have a great week and chat soon! Hugs, Marie

  5. Holy cow! How long had it been since you had it serviced? How nice to be able to do it yourself! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
