Yet another [unscheduled] interruption to our regularly scheduled program of great sewing stories…..
And I now remember why I hate working with stretchy knits….
Pattern pieces for M7195 are cut. Fabric pieces are cut. Bodice front and lining have been sown and I’ve started to attach the neckline….
I found this ultra, 4-way stretch material (white, similar HERE & HERE) from FabricMart a few months back. It was originally meant for a jumper, but after I got it, I realized that it was too thin and would need to be lined…
And then it happens. My bobbin thread, that has been jamming and has even broken a few needles at this point, has completely jammed up.
It was too upsetting to take pics – I hope you understand the trauma!
I’ve opened the metal plate, checked the area and even added some oil. But now, I can’t remember which way the metal opening faces vs the bobbin casing. I also noticed that my bobbin cover (plastic) has broken and no longer closes properly.
I really want to pull my hair out and throw BETSY across the room.
But instead, I put everything town and plan on searching for my instructions from the last time this happened.
I went ahead and ordered my now THIRD bobbin cover from a neat place I found online that sells parts for all sewing machine companies. I suppose I’ll be OKAY with the wait for delivery…. I have no choice.
Anywho… this is just another thing that happens sometimes when you’re sewing so PLEASE consider yourself WARNED!
Hopefully, I won’t need to take my machine in and I’ll be back up this weekend……. but until then, you may see more fashion inspirations and possibly some cosmetic posts 🙁
Until next time…….
