    A couple things though; they use 20x1 size needles and the bobbin is longer than a standard Singer Mdl 27 or 28 size. I've only got 4 for my machine and haven't found any more yet.

  7. Online fabric source - Frustration on some sites

    by , 03-17-2016 at 11:55 PM
    I have a sampler pattern that I want to try - but don't like all the fabrics suggested. Having a hard time "shopping online", trying to match/complement. Does anyone know of an online site (live in Germany so has to be online) where you can 'see' the collections, rather than clicking each link to open and view? Hawthorne Threads has a huge collection of Collections but it goes from A to Z and they are all links. Help.
