Remember a while back my main sewing machine (a Brother Embroidery machine) had some problems? Well, I have a quick update – and maybe polling for some more suggestions here. The machine got worse and worse – a larger percentage of the time when I turn it on – it would not go forward normally.Continue reading “Brother Sewing Machine Woes”

Sewing Table Mini-Makeover
During the last few days of pregnancy, I tried to get Kaylee out by being more active — cleaning the house, going on walks, etc. One of the things I did was to do a mini sewing table make over.

A few weeks laterContinue reading “Another Sewing Machine — Singer 750”
Elna Grasshopper Usage Review
So I had my Elna Grasshopper for almost a year now. To say the truth, I havent sewn much with it. When I first got the machine I did a few project with it and then I stopped when the weather got cold.

Happy Birthday to MEEEEEE!
I turned a year older recently, so I bought myself a cool sewing machine 😛 Its a hand crank sewing machine made in the early 1900s. It doesnt work very well yet, but I bought it because it has a shuttle bobbin, and I dont currently own a sewing machine with that mechanism. There seemContinue reading “Happy Birthday to MEEEEEE!”
Sewing Room Showoff!
Thanks for all your comments on my purple coat! I love it so far and have worn it a few times. I feel a little self-conscious about all the second takes I am getting in that coat! But I feel rich and great in it, except that the wool is a little scratchy, even throughContinue reading “Sewing Room Showoff!”
