And I’m going to remind every one to maintain their machines at home get that lint out, and oil it as needed – like if you haven’t used the machine in three weeks.
thread and needles from mqxChange the needle regularly, spending time unstitching because the tip if your needle is bent is frustrating. Ask me how I know – I won’t show you my thread covered shirt. The machine will have to go in for a tune up with the tech soon.

Sewing, and quilting are good for our mental health.

Happy Quilting!
