Open The Box!

Right! I’m going to show my age now.

Do you remember a TV programme, hosted by Michael Miles (whom I always preferred to Hughie Green), called “Take Your Pick”? If I remember rightly, contestants answered some questions. Then there was a triangular prop which was made of squares and the contestant picked a key. Then there was the decision… “Take the money” or “Open the box”. The audience would call out which they thought the contestant should choose.

Well, today you and I are going to open the box…

IT’S MY NEW MACHINE!!! Woohoo! It arrived last Thursday but I haven’t had a chance to blog about it until now.

I must reassure you that I wouldn’t normally photograph the opening of a box. However, there was a very sensible reason for doing so in this situation viz I need to pack the machine in its original packaging when it goes for service or if it needs a repair. So, it made sense to be able to see exactly how it all goes in the box so that it is as easy as possible to do it when the time comes. Sensible, huh? Surely it was far too sensible for me to have thought of it, but I did!

Happy sewing!

  1. Yay!! Happy unpacking, Dina and testing your new toy! I thought you were so excited about your new machine that you decided to take photos of each step of unpacking it, but you had a very good reason. I wouldn't have thought of doing that. Good idea. I am curious what would be the first piece you produce on the new machine. 🙂


  2. Ha ha ha! If it hadn't been for the fact that I wanted to be reminded of how it fitted in the box, I would have been too excited to waste time taking photos, Larisa. I can barely believe I was so restrained!
