Gathering the gang?

It hit me a few months ago: a chance encounter in Geneva’s flea market with a small shiny machine, at a time when my large modern machine was sulking at me. I had just had to pay more than 400.- Swiss francs to have a 6-year-old Pfaff repaired, and it still didn’t sew properly. I paid much less than that to take the little black box home from the market, feeling it needed a loving home. “Oui, elle marche”, said the man on the stall, “mais je ne sais pas m’en servir”. I thought I might give it a go.

A few clicks online later that evening and I had a printed booklet, information, and a mad desire to play and sew.
