I bought another sewing machine. I couldn’t help it. FirstSamples was having the everything must go moving sale. I was working that day and decided that I couldn’t spend more than the day’s wages. There was a Babylock 1550 just sitting there on the table by itself 3 hours into the sale. I decided to give it a home. It wasn’t missing any critical parts (who needs the double needle spool pin?).
The other thing I was on the fence about was fashion shows. I don’t really consider myself a “designer”. By anyways, I saw that they had but a call out for DIY designers on the Austinist. They were looking for people to participate in the Treasure City Thrift Fashion Show. Each designer needs to create a collection of atleast 3 outfits made of refashioned clothes. The show is in October so I need to get moving pretty quick. I’d like to do 5-7 outfits.
