Hello, hello my blog family
I hope each of you are well and have had a wonderful weekend. I could not post last night because I was too pooped to pop! :) We had got all the supplies together to take back to the sewing machine shop and took off. But once we arrived there the lady was working in a different store and they read the note she had left that said the machine was sewing correctly on the designs that were in the machine and that she thought it was a stabilization problem with me. They said I needed heavy stabilizer and that I needed to pull the fabric so hard that it would be taunt!
I remember when I was sewing nightshirts for my mother-in-law a few years back and that was the way I did her shirts, But it always left something that made me think of a burn mark all around where the hoop held the fabric? Plus,when working with knits I have become afraid I would pull it out of shape because these knits have so much stretch to them?I got lucky and they did not even charge me this time.
It took me until this morning to get my courage up to see if I could have any success at this "tugging" part.
I did add another piece of cut away stabilizer since the last I had bought was not the same quality of what I had before and I did spray everything heavier. It started off great -BUT- then it started breaking threads again.(Hitting head on table!) LOL But , I could deal with that -BUT-then all of a sudden it started to pull the bobbin thread onto the top of the shirt!GGGGGG!
I think I held my breath for a minute and I backed up and tried a couple of things -Which did not work! By now it was beginning to almost tear a hole in the shirt and now that it was almost finished -I sure did not want to lose the fight. I decided to use a trick I had seen my oldest daughter - in-law do. She would put the same color of thread in the bobbin ! Yea- I stole her idea and it even worked. It still was pulling the bobbin thread onto the top , but you could not tell the difference. So, thanks to a dear daughter-in-law my project was saved. LOL _ O, It just hit me how funny that was BECAUSE the shirt will be for her for Christmas! :)
Thank you so very much for visiting with me -love to each one!:)
