Well as the title says new family member. I would like to introduce you to Dolly. Dolly was my Ebay bargin, which I had to travel 487 miles for on Saturday morning to pick up. I left the house at 5.15am and went on my merry way. Big D was supposed to be going, but was not well enough. I actually enjoyed the journey there which took about 4.5 hours, but coming back was not so good. Accident after Accident so my 4.5 hours turned into 6.5!
Now to me my dolly is very special, you see my machine and I were not on good terms, she was old and temperamental and I was loosing faith in her, so I started to look around as was recommended Juki who are well known for their industrial expertise. They have ventured into the domestic market. Well after much research and a honest conversation with my local machine shop, they said if you can get your hands on a industrial model, you will have a friend for life. So that's how I found her,
She is a DDL 555 and is beautiful, named Dolly after my Nanna, who used sewing machines all her life.
She has her own table
Her own oil well
And I Love her very much.
Off now to rest back soon with lots of sewn goodies
