A Loose Screw
Today's post is a short one. A loose screw on a sewing machine is a bad thing. Especially if it's the screw holding the presser foot is in place because when you're using a free-motion foot. If it slides, your needle may snap due to making contact with machine parts it shouldn't make contact with. If your needle snaps, fragments can fly and hit you right where you broke your nose 33 years ago by tripping on a garden hose and slamming your face onto the edge of the concrete patio step. The moral of the story? Check that the presser foot screw is tight, and don't leave the garden hose out.
Quilting, tatting, knitting, crochet and other stuff
I'm a fiber junkie. Not the edible kind, mind you but the fabric, yarn and thread kind. I quilt, paint fabric, tat lace, crochet and knit and on this blog you'll find information about what I'm working on as well as anything else I feel the need to share.
If you would like information about anything I mention in my blog, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.
I'm a fiber artist living just outside Portland, OR in Beaverton. I am married with two pet chihuahuas and one service dog in training. I am a voracious reader and think ereaders are one of the greatesr inventions, ever.
