I think my sewing machine is on its last legs. It can definitely be repaired, but I've been thinking about getting a new sewing machine for ages anyway so I think the time has come. My faithful 60 year old mint green machine will go into retirement and just be used as a backup and I will buy a new machine! I have my eye on a few refurbished Berninas on ebay. I'm crossing my fingers that the prices stay low.
Even if the price stays relatively low, it will still be a large purchase and I haven't been making a lot of money this Summer. As such, I will probably open two commissions slots to help pay off the machine once I have it in my possession. The auctions will end mid week next week, so if I do win one we're looking at maybe a week and a half from now for commission openings. If I don't win one of these auctions then it might be longer, but I am still hoping to find a new machine within the next month.
Please see my previous journal for commission information:

Mares are about 13 inches tall, stallions are about 15 inches, and fillies are about 9 inches. Standard pegasus, unicorn, and earth pony mares will be available in a normal standing position or in a sitting Lyra position. If
I'll post more information once I am sure that I'll have a new machine. I just wanted to give people a heads up!
I will also try to open commissions more regularly this year. I'll have a new machine and I have a new craft room since we just finished moving to a larger apartment, which will definitely help with my sewing efficiency! I do also want to try pre-making some things to sell and making some non-pony things. Right now I'm lacking in motivation to sew because my sewing machine is being finicky and annoying, but a new machine will help immensely!
If you have any questions about commissions that aren't answered in that journal feel free to comment! If you would like a price quote for something before deciding if you want to request a commission when they open, please send me a note!
