Default So.....It's Come To This

I can't begin to tell you how many times in the last couple of years I have sewn with the wrong settings on my machine. It starts up with settings that I need to change. I forget so often. Well, a few days ago, I had to take an 8 1/2 x 11 paper and write a large note that I leave on the machine just under the needle. This will work well for me until I forget to put the note on the machine.

63 and falling apart.

Right there with you, sticky notes save me--if I remember to use them...

My machine always turned on with the needle all the way to the left. ?Makes no sense whatsoever? Thanks to a poster here I learned how to reset it so the needle is always in the center position when it turns on. I have a Brother but so far has worked on every machine that has programmable settings.

I often pin, tape (whatever it takes) notes to my machine and projects so I don't forget what to do next, where I'm at, machine settings, etc. You are not alone. I'm 67 now but I used to do this when I still worked and was much younger. It helped me to start the day right.

I write notes for EVERYTHING and put them where I WILL see them. I do that for my machine, too. (I take a photo of my settings if there's one I must not lose--in addition to writing it on paper-because I've lost sticky notes.) And I'm barely past 50.

52, and I visit your world often. I also try to re-set my machine immediately following a change up. Otherwise, rip, rip, rip.

What did we do before sticky notes?? The paper probably fell on the floor, and never seen again. Hmmmmm.
