Finally Loving This Machine . . . Finally
This week, I've been working with my embroidery machine. In the past, our relationship has been a little rocky. It seems I have a difficult time adjusting the tension to the proper spot, and my designs have white edges around each section. When I contacted the shop from whom I bought the machine, they told me it could be my bobbin thread. So, I bought pre-wound bobbins with bobbin thread that were made for my machine. It helped, but still the design looked a little off. In the past, I had always put the spool of thread onto the machine in a horizontal position secured with a "thingy" (for lack of a better word). I'm not sure why, but on Monday when I threaded the machine, I put my thread on a vertical post with one of the "thingies" turned upside down so that it resembled a tray. My spool fits into the tray and the thread seems to come off the spool more evenly. And my designs look amazing.
of my favorite sites, and figured they would be so cute for a baby. I loved this set. I have four more blocks to finish and can begin to cut the sashing. I am just so amazed at the amount of texture this machine can add to the stitching. I just sit here and watch it do it's thing.
