Lookit what followed me home the other day!
It’s a Consew blind hemmer. A new industrial machine dealer opened up recently. Jim had been working with my other dealer until last year. He sent around an email to the local chapter of ASDP, letting us know he had opened his shop. So I called him. I’ve been looking for a blind hemmer for a while. After talking with Gigi, I decided that a table-set industrial was overkill for my needs. Jim had this little beauty (new!) at a great price, so I bought myself an early anniversary (Gorgeous Fabrics will be 4 in a couple of weeks – can you believe it???) present. This baby will see a lot of use. DS the elder has hit his growth spurt, and it seems like every week I’m re-hemming pants and jackets. Or I would be if I had a blind hemmer. And now I do! DS the younger isn’t too far behind. I can’t wait to try Gigi’s method of padstitching with it!
Hey Gigi, want to come up to Boston and play in the snow and teach me how to use this baby?
