Babs is upset. Her 30 year old sewing machine cannot cope any more. The pressure of increasing Christmas jumper sales has lead to a string of breakdowns.
Tonight we're going industrial. Sewing machine repairman Steve is installing an industrial machine for us. Sounds terrifying, but it just means it's stronger and because we're sewing thick materials on to thick materials, that's what we need.
Happy retirement old machine. Enjoy your light duties of baby clothes and labels.
