Machine Basics

I learned sewing from my step-grandmother who was a Home Economics Major. She'd be up early, and cut and finished a dress before evening meal. But she didn't teach me maintenance. I now have five sewing machines, two heavy-duty, two for quilting and an embroidery. I am mechanically minded, but preferred to have someone in the know show me the ins and outs. I feel validated about what I was doing. I'll never be too old to learn more and love the Craftsy classes I've viewed. Thank you.

Great Refresher

I am an experience sewer but I have a new machine that was giving me a problem. Watching this gave me some tips I had not thought of before and was a great refresher!
