It is DONE! Thank goodness, the blue floral bedspread is complete and gorgeous if I do say so myself (blush). I relisted it on etsy, with new photos.
My machine is back from the shop, and I'm still not happy with it. I bought an inexpensive Kenmore model about 2 years ago, not knowing how serious I was about sewing. Now that I'm relying on my products to support me and pay my bills, my machine is critical, and I believe I need to buy a professional model. I watch Project Runway, and notice all their machines are Brother models. The problem with my Kenmore is that there I am, sewing along, and suddenly BAM! the thread spool sort of jumps and I have a tangle of threads in shuttle race. Harumph. Why does it do that? Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? It's a serious pain in the neck and slows me right down to zero while I take the shuttle apart and put it back together. Argh. So frustrating.
I'd really appreciate anyone's advise in this matter. Can you recommend a different machine? Or can you tell me what I'm doing wrong so this will stop happening to me? Thanks a lot for any and all input - I will be reading all comments, eagerly seeking solutions.
