Someday you may find yourself in a situation where you NEED a sewing machine. Not for quilting or crafting or sewing, but for something much more important. This weekend my son was playing “fishing” and needed a very special “trailer hitch” so that he could “tow” his boat properly. My initial thought was to use a string or shoelace – but I envisioned problems knowing that something like that would not be easy for him to hook and unhook himself. I then became “supermom”, racing into my sewing room (followed closely by my entire family, including mom-in-law, dad-in-law, and dogs). Under scrutiny and many pairs of watchful eyes I efficiently cut and measured a piece of very tacky ribbon, finished the edges and sewed on velcro. VOILA! Perfect “trailer hitch”. I rule.
So this is why everyone needs a sewing machine. The look on my little boys face was priceless.
What emergency situation have you rescued with your sewing machine?
