Busy Busy | To-Do Tuesday 11-11-14

It’s Veteran’s Day here in the U.S. and I must take time to thank all who have served, and are continuing to serve this country. I thank them for their sacrifice, so that I can lounge here on my couch, in my jammies, typing up this blog post while watching TV, in the safety of my home, in my wonderful little town in Arizona. Thanks are also due to their families. To their wives, husbands, children, parents, and siblings who also sacrifice time with their loved one and keep everything running on the home front in their absence. You are all so very appreciated. THANK YOU!!

This past week was crazy busy! I did not write an update post on the seam guide as I originally intended. Instead, I ended up creating a new webpage for Mister and an accompanying blog post for said page. After introducing his new LED to Instagram, a PQ1500S group, and to facebook, we spent the better part of the week taking orders and addressing questions. Then we learned that two customers shared his link in two different internet groups and the orders exploded!! Every evening we share a “Today I’m Grateful For this…” and both Mister and I agree that we are grateful for happy customers sharing the information with others. THANK YOU for passing the word on about these LEDs! We are thanked every day by people who are excited to find them, and for that we thank YOU!!

Also, thank you for your patience if you ordered a bulb and are having to wait because we sold out extraordinarily fast. We thought we were prepared this time… Yikes! Just know we’re trying to catch up!!

8 sets of Sew Together Bags. Sorry it's a blurry picture!

8 sets of Sew Together Bags. Sorry it’s a blurry picture!

After all of that wonderful activity this week, all I managed to get done on the Christmas gifts was to cut out all the fabric and interfacing pieces and get the interfacing fused to the 5 sets of bags. Tomorrow I hope to get the other three sets fused and start sewing. I am hoping to assembly line sew most of this, but we’ll see how well that works. If end up having to constantly change thread it may not be much of a time saver.

This week’s To-Do list:

  • Keep up on blog reading. Comment more!!
  • Finish fusing interfacing to Sew Together Bag fabric pieces. Done 11/11
  • Start sewing Sew Together Bags.
  • Write seam guide update post. For real this time! Done 11/12

Now it’s your turn! Write up your post and link up using the InLinkz linky below.

Sewing Machine LED Bulbs Out The Wazoo!

Mister has been busy getting custom LEDs built for sewing machines!!!  But I should clarify that he doesn’t literally have LED’s out the wazoo (thank goodness for that!).

Battle of the Bulbs

Battle of the Bulbs

I posted a while back that he was selling LED’s replacement bulbs for the Singer Featherweight 221 machines.  The way the bases were manufacturered limited them to mainly the black 221 machines, and they could not be used in the Singer 301 machines. Brad worked with the manufacturer and they redesigned the base for him!  So if you were holding off buying an LED because you didn’t think it would fit your white Singer 221 (those were hit and miss with whether they’d fit or not), or you have a 301 and you want this LED… Head over HERE to place an order.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!! (I feel like the Wacky Wavy Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man Emporium & Warehouse salesman from Family Guy right now.)

Brad worked with the manufacturer to get them to make a screw based bulb for my Brother PQ1500S. Turns out it’s a standard 7/16″ screw-based 110V bulb common in quite a few sewing machines.  It fits my other Brother, an XL-3750 as well. So if you’re interested in an LED for your sewing machine you can check this page HERE and click on the link that lists the machines that are compatible with this bulb.

Measurement difference

IMPORTANT NOTE (that the Wacky Wavy Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man salesman would NOT share with you): The LED is a scant 1/4″ LONGER than the standard bulb.  Most machines have that extra room, but we just want you to double check to be sure before ordering!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  I am about to get back to sewing my Christmas presents.  What plans do you have this weekend??
