Do you attempt any of your own sewing machine maintenance? I consider myself mechanically inept, but I love to tinker with my sewing machines. After all, some of them are older than my children, and they deserve a little TLC!
Thanks to a fellow blogger, I recently learned about Autonopedia, a site devoted to compiling practical information focused on sustainable living. One of their topics covers simple sewing machine repairs. I love that it is categorized in the “Fabric and Dyes” group on this site – hee! The diagrams are definitely of vintage machines, but for you more modern types there is still some useful information. And fun in a sewing-geek kind of way. I especially like the Common Sewing Machine Faults chart. Not that I would like my faults paraded to the world, but there is some good stuff here. Especially if your machine is acting up at 3:00 a.m. and your favorite repair shop is closed
Well, the sewing plan for this weekend is all about jeans. Making them. I am entering the Jeans Contest on PatternReview.com, and need to finish up one pair that is underway and knock out another. More on that later!
