Oh no!

Sewing machine was dragged out again after its Christmas break to make a book bag (didn’t know whether I could actually understand the instructions but had to give it a try…), and I was getting a tad irritated as the top thread kept snapping.

Changed the thread, changed the bobbin and even changed the needle but it wasn’t great at all. Cleaned out the bobbin area completely and that is when the machine just got into a terrible tangle and wouldn’t sew at all! Sob.

Rang Silver who said that it would have to be returned as the bobbin may need resetting but I’m just considering if it should be returned to the guy who deals with Silver in Newcastle. Only problem there is that he’s miles from a car park and the machine is a tad heavy…. Problems, problems, problems.

Never mind, trusty old Janome machine was brought in use and finally I’ve managed to produce my book bag. Had a few problems in that I managed to sew the strap inside the casing (!), but all in all I’m very happy with it.
