messes up! Grrr! I've been fighting a yucky head cold for two days now. Today I want to finish a quilt and none of my machines will work! They worked earlier this week! My Kenmore needs to go to the shop but no money....my white (my old workhorse) is suddenly not working either. I can pick up thread by turning the wheel but when I try to sew the top thread just breaks. I've rethreaded, cleaned, oiled....and anything else I could think of. So I remember the antique white rotary I got this summer.....hmmm. Nope it won't pick up thread either. So it must be me! So here I sit wanting to sew and can't. If I felt better I'd break that credit card out of the safe and go use it to buy a new machine! I'm scared to try the treadle....it was my grandmother's and I hate to mess it up too.
