OK...I bought a cute purse at a yardsale for $1.00. I threw it in the washer bc it had some lipstick and lip gloss on the inside.
The only problem was that one side of the magnetic snap came loose, and it was put together on the inside of the lining. I pulled it back up and thought I would machine stitch around it to keep it in its place...also thought I would use a decorative stitch so it would look like it made that way...but...it stuck to my feed dogs. I thought OOPS! maybe that wouldn't be good for the machine.
This has been a while, and the machine is fine. I was scared for a while, though, bc this is my SE 270D that I go on about all the time!
Anyone ever do this?? Do you know if magnets can damage a machine?
