I picked up my sewing machine at the repair shop the other day. I had to take it in because a broken needle fell down in the bobbin case and I couldn't reach it to get it out. (That is a whole other story.) It needed a tune up anyway. When I took it in I had it in a case and all packed up nice, but they don't want to keep any superfluous covers or cords, so I left only the machine. When I went back to get it, I didn't have the case with me.
Please tell me that I am not the only one who buckles their machine in when traveling. Some people around here think that is so funny.
