It has taken me a while to get up the will to quilt. I am unemployed for the second time and feeling down. But I decided that quilting would make me feel better and be a good stress reliever for job searching. My machine however, had different plans. I've had it for three years and I guess it's time to go in for a cleaning. First the thread keep making a nest underneathe the fabric. I have changed bobbins, rethreaded the machine. The nesting has stopped but now the bobbin goes up and down then jams! I just needed to vent. The shop where I bought is great and servicing and cleaning. I am going to a friend's house tomorrow to quilt. She has two machines set up to go at anytime, so I can use one of hers. Such is the joy of quilting and creating!
