    Please tell me I'm not alone

    I can't be the only one who does things like this: spends 90 minutes and wastes miles of thread before realizing that the problem isn't the machine tension, it's that the bobbin is threaded wrong. D'oh.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    You are not alone. Once I was chain piecing and did about 30 pieces before I realized the bobbin had run out, among other things.

    If it makes you feel better after reading this I was like "You can thread a bobbin wrong?" I then googled it and went "Ohhh...that's why my machine does that..."
