I feel like such a DORK! I have had my sewing machine, a Kenmore, given to me as a gift by my ex quite a few years ago. Now, just because I half paid attention in sewing class, I think I know everything about sewing. And when I couldn't get the tension right and my thread got tangled, it was a problem with the machine. Until this weekend, when I did a little mini tune-up on the machine and I printed out the instruction manual to see how to do this. Ha! I have been threading the bobbin all wrong for all of these years. There are sure a few more tricks that I will be able to learn from reading the directions.
If you've had a chance to check out my new blog, Adventures With Sally Ann, you would have seen my new books that I scored last weekend.
