After 13 plus years I have finally figured out how the needle threaded on my machine works. I was shown when I purchased the machine, Reshown a number of times on request when I had the machine serviced, but could never get the threader to work for me. I have tried a number of times over the years but it only created frustration at a high level. Than last week I was reading the blog rachelrossidesign and she had a video, very clear, very slow and now I can use the needle threaded. Now to remember to use it.
Put a small label sticker on your machine near the needle area (the kind of label offices put on file folders) with the name "rachelrossidesign" on it as a memory jogger.
(I'll send you the kind of label I'm thinking about if you do not have one handy; no need for you to buy a whole package. Send me your snail mail addy through the forum messaging system.)
That will indeed be a "hot " quilt. Enjoy making it. Are you wearing oven mitts?
Jo, I don't use mine because it rarely works. Easier to thread myself. Maybe the problem is me. I have considered that I may just not have had the patience to learn to use it correctly.
Thank Judy, I have labels so just might put one on it.
Cathy, I was thinking like you, either the threader is defective or I am. But after I watch the short video and understood how a threader worked I was able to figure out how to make mine work for me.
One block done and twenty-eight more to go. (Those are binding and borders pinned on the left side of design wall.)
I am starting a new online polymer clay class on April 1st that is supposed to run until the end of May. It might be the clay class that drives me around the bend (the instructor is a bit of an obsessive perfectionist) but then again it might be a great deal of fun. Sigh. If you are curious, check out www.dancormier.ca and look at the designs under his name on his home page. Wish me luck. LOL
This one is going to be awesome!
A progress report on my "Hot to Trot" (Kaffe Fasset's "Red Ribbons" quilt from one of his books) will show you that I have reached the square-in-a-square phase. Only four more rounds to go.
I really do not like the yellow and orange tiger stripe fabric and will have to force myself to use it by muttering "Kaffe selected this fabric for some reason". And the orchid and orange dot fabric is also very low on my favorites list. I suppose using those two fabrics will build character. LOL
