30,000 Stitch Tune-Up

I'm taking my sewing machine to the fixer-upper's place tonight for a tune-up.  It's been about three years since I bought it and I have a feeling it needs someone mechanically inclined to look at its bits and pieces so that I can get to work on some hardcore needle-on-fabric action.  It's been months since I've had time to sew, what with the working and the traveling and everything else.  Now that it is summer I think I need a new summer dress, some lightweight pajama pants, and I bought a sun hat pattern last year so that I could have something cute to wear when I'm out gardening.  And I certainly can't start gardening until I have my cute summer do you see the jam I've gotten myself into? They said it takes about a week for them to work their magic.  I can wait a week.  Maybe I'll go get the case a new sticker to commemorate the tune-up...

UPDATE:  The machine was back in under a week, even with the holiday weekend!  Yay!  There was nothing wrong with it.  They recommended a tune-up once every two to three years.  Right on track!
