My sewing machine hates me. Maybe it's because I haven't used it in so long that it has decided to throw a temper tantrum.
I'm in the middle of trying to make what I had hoped would be a supercute Halloween apron to send to Jackie. It's turning out to be a disaster. I've picked it back up tonight after about two weeks to try and finish up and get it in the mail on Monday. I manage to get the pocket sewn on(with a zigzag stitch on bias tape). I get to the ties and all of the bottom stitches start looping. I've had the tension on every single setting possible. I have un-threaded, re-threaded, removed bobbin and attempted to clean the bobbin case and then made a new bobbin and re-threaded that, I put in a new needle and STILL the underside stitches look like this: AaARRRHhggggGGG! I wonder, will it be more expensive to have the machine serviced than to just buy a new one? It's a Brother and probably cost less than 150 bucks when it was new.
SOOOOO aggravated right now! Going to find a workout DVD with lots of kicks and punches for tonight and let out some frustration!
