I’ve had enough!!

That’s it…no more tonight!  I changed thread, used the Sewer’s Aid, took out the bobbin looking for lint, oiled everything I could see and the thread is still breaking.  I am going to give up tonight and look at it tomorrow with (hopefully) fresh eyes.


  1. I hate evenings or days like that...maybe change the needle? The needles that came with my new machine were immediately thrown out.

  2. Maybe it's the needle? I have had problems off and on, on some things and I keep thinking it's the needle. I think in my case it may be the thread but I give up too after a while...

  3. What kind of thread spool are you using? Is there a chance the thread is getting caught on the spool? Is there a 'notch' on the edge of your spool that your thread could be catching on?

    I wish I was near so I could come brainstorm with you.

  4. I know the feeling. I can try everything and go back the next day and it will work just fine. Hopefully that works for you too.

  5. I know that when they manufacture needles they say that 10% of them are bad and to change needles when you encounter problems...but I was wondering, can you get a "bad" spool of thread?

    Try a different thread, hug yourself for us and eat a bite of a comforting tidbit and pray....


  6. Can't wait to see the photos of the bags! :)
