Welcome to the Quilting Board!
So that's why my most productive hour is after midnight!
"What do you mean worrying doesn't help? Everything I ever worried about...never happened!"quote by __________ I forget who.
so, to bring this back to sewing machines....
When you see "Industrial" in an ad for a sewing machine remember...THIS is real Singer Industrial. (241-12)
[Backstory - I busted my last original needle for my 29-4, I am not ready with the Politype patcher for a working project, and I NEEDED to finish stitching up some leather bits for the Gorget (neck armor, pronounced like "Gore-shay") because the customer was leaving in the morning for Spain to fight in it]
I asked Heather if she would rather hand stitch with the sinew or give the 241 a try. The leather involved is 8oz split cowhide, so it would mean hemming and attaching pieces, max 2 layers. She said, let's give the beast a try. (not her, the machine)
The finished piece
