I'm the same way! I'm very picky about phone manner though. After working
in college as a switchboard operator, then as a long distance operator right
after I graduated school..... Yeah I'm picky about phone manners. LOL

That's a really good idea to get more than one size of shoulder pad. And
the elastic does make a big difference. I've tried some of the skirt
patterns with whatever elastic I had on hand. Worked OK, but... ;) The
ones that I've done with the right sized elastic are more comfortable. And
I really like putting elastic in with my serger, her patterns were where I
first learned that. ;)

Pretty good. Everything is unpacked except for the sewing room. I left
that till last on purpose. We still have to get stuff hung on the walls.
Pictures, shelves, etc. But I think Mike & I are going to work on that
tomorrow afternoon when he gets home.
Have run into some problems. They did not pack my machines the way I wanted
them packed. My new Viking is fine. It was packed in its original box with
all of its styrofoam. I had the original box and foam for my serger also.
They put the serger in the box with half the foam, then stuffed fabric into
the top of the box after putting the serger in there sideways. GRRRRRR
Bent the snot out of the thread tree. And who knows what other damage that
caused. My Singer home machine.... I've had it for years and the box is
long gone. But I have a hard case that came with my new Viking. It also
fits on my Singer. So I told them to put the Singer in the hard case, and
pad around that in a box. Nope. They put the Singer in a box, and the hard
case next to it. Yeah that will help. My embroidery machine was packed
with almost no padding around it, but hey they left the dust cover on it!
And they wadded a cardboard cutting board into a useless pile of mess.
Emailed the movers yesterday. They are sending me a claim form. I stressed
in my email to them that I had specifically told the packers how I wanted
things and they didn't do it that way. I told them I would be finding a
sewing machine shop here to inspect the machines and repair them if
possible. Then I asked how to be reimbursed for that. I didn't ask if they
would, I asked what the process was. They will fix this one way or another.
Other than that, everything has gone really well!!
