Well this weekend was supposed to be the weekend that I took my new sewing machine out of the box, learned how to use it, and taught my oldest daughter how to sew while giving back to our community.
Well at 9:40pm tonight, I decided to get started and I took my machine out of the box as I wanted to get everything set up and ready to go for tomorrow with my daughter. (I know, I know, why did I wait so late to get started, but such is the life of a full-time working outside of the home momma of 3.)
I was so excited. I carefully took each item out of the box. There was the cover, the pedal, the plug, a bag with the extra feet and such, and then there was an envelope. I couldn't wait to go through the contents of the envelope as I knew the instruction manual had to be in there and I was ready to get sewing.
I opened the envelope and found several Bernina promotional brochures and the information on my warranty; however, that was it. There was NO user's manual to be found.
I didn't know what to do as I sat there staring at all of these buttons.
Where do I even begin?!? I just don't know. I'm sure I could figure it out, but that scares me. So I have sent an SOS to Ice Tea and if I don't hear from her soon, I will be sending one to Martini tomorrow.
I hope this doesn't slow down my pillowcase plans for the weekend with my daughter.
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed and heading to bed for the night.
