I also found out the stitch length and needle I need to use, which made me sit down with the machine and practice some stitches to figure out the right setting, and then I searched through all my needles only to find out, I don’t have what I need, a sharp size 70/10.
Another incredible tip from Andrea is to put a small piece of tape over the hole on the sewing plate of the machine – the needle goes right through, but leaves only a small hole to prevent the fabric being sucked down into the machine – again- GENIUS! I need to do that with any fabric I am sewing because I always seem to have that problem!
So, since I cannot afford to buy the needles I need until Friday, I will have to find something else to work on in the meantime. Unfortunately, I will have to look for something tomorrow since tonight I have to write an 1,100 word essay by 11 tonight and I haven’t even started. <big sigh>
