Oh man, I almost threw my (new) machine out the window the day before yesterday! I am so with you Heather!!!!
I broke 2 needles. Finally got the thing going again but now I'm afraid to do anything but straight stitch because when I turned the dial to a fancier bigger stitch the needles broke. If anyone has the time.... are you supposed
to CHANGE the pressure foot to do anything other than straight stitch? I don't THINK SO!
And also, try as I do, when I push the bobbin down to catch the thread it doesn't really seem to catch on anything.
I DEFINITELY want a class and thanks so much ! MARYKZ for that tip about Joannes. I'm not very close but maybe I can find a way to get there for those classes. I recently found some sewing classes in Manhattan
(clothes) but of course, being NYC they want $350 for like 4 or 5 classes.
Can no do.
HEATHER! Don't you feel like a GIANT sometime with your great big hands trying to do all that little threading stuff!!!!
