Sewing Class



The sewing machine did indeed make it in time for class. However, I would like to point out that I still had the packing tape on it when I brought it to class.

Lessons learned: a hard cover does not mean a hard case and that case gives you a little extra storage space, particularly for electrical cords and foot pedals. I ended up going to Joann's yesterday and purchasing a hard case similar to my daughter's.

The class itself taught me a little more than I learned from my first class, namely how to take off and replace your needle. Because I had read the operator's manual before I came to class, I was able to help two other women wind their bobbins and thread their machines. Not bad for a newbie.

What is one lesson you wish you had learned when you first started out?

Introduction



Don't you hate it when you start a blog? There's this painful introductory post that seems to be a prerequisite to actually having a blog. And it's this one.
I'm still waiting on my machine, UPS has it taking a 500 mile detour in a completely different direction. However, hope springs eternal that tomorrow shall come early and I will get my machine in time for my class tomorrow night.
