Q&A with rjj408634986

balacolli708478333 asked:
Hiya, I love how you have made this your own version. I was wondering if you would mind me asking why you have added the colours to theneedle storage panel please. I am only just starting to get into using the correct needles for the rigght job, so I was wondering if this would help me somehow. I would be forever grateful for your help. Many Thanks, Diane xx
rjj408634986 answered:
Hi Diane- I added the colors to match the Schmetz needle color codes. Not really necessary but I thought it would be fun to experiment with a different look. The inkjet printer colors will not hold up to water as they are not pigment like the black. For a more permanent option I would experiment with fabric markers of some type. Enjoy the project, I hope this answers your question . Robin

Hiya Robin. Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Oh, thats a great idea. I hadn't even noticed that there were any colors on my needles until reading your reply lol. I have also just noticed that your needle storage panel is different to the 1 in the pattern and was wondering how you made it as I think your version would work better for me, not that there's anything wrong with the pattern designers design, I just like yours better hehe. I am normally pretty good with working out how to do this type of thing, but due to poor health, I can't get my head in the game to do it myself. Thanks again, Diane xx

Hi Diane- Sorry for the late reply. So sorry that you are not at 100% health. I hope that getting back into creating and sewing will help you with a speedy recovery! I thought I replied yesterday, but for some reason I don't see the reply here! To make my grid, I printed and measured the grid associated with the pattern and then I used a spreadsheet program to set up my own grid. It can also be done using the table feature in a word processing program. Mine measures slightly larger, but it worked fine. There is a fair mount of extra space. Like recipes, I use the patterns as a guide to adjust the flavors to my needs. ;) I recently found a different needle company that does not use colors so the colors are less important than the sizes. Be creative and you can't go wrong enjoy! Robin xx
