I was going to wait a little longer to make this major announcement (until we had visas at least!), but I’ve come up against a few stumbling points that I feel my fellow bloggers would be best to answer.
1. About my beloved Pfaff!
On the relocation package we have been given, shipping over our possessions is not an option. But I am planning on checking my sewing machine in as luggage. Does anyone have any advice on this?
But more importantly, does anyone know if it will actually work in the States? We run on 240V in Australia, and I believe it is 210V over there. Will this be a problem?
I’m planning to get it serviced before we go, so I thought I’d ask the experts there too.
It’s quite possible that I won’t be able to sew for a month with all the ditching, moving and finding a house business that will be going on. HELP!!!!! I have decided I will keep my crafty fingers busy by learning the art of knitting. Now I can cast on and knit the basic stitch (ie make a scarf!) but that is where it all ends for me. I would love some advice on sock making, knitting books, and patterns. However, most pressing for me is to know what type of needles I should buy and what type/and how much yarn I should take. I figure that by the time I have the chance to read about what I will need, I will be on my way and stuck without the correct tools.
A big thank you in advance for all the advice and thoughts that come my way!
