2. I don’t want to sell it!
I got it set up and did a bit of sewing to check it was OK, and it ran so beautifully and...

Thankyou. I do wait for the starch to soak in, but you’re right - I don’t let it dry. I would have to become much better than I am about planning ahead! (I don’t have a dryer).But this is well worth...

Good idea. I think I’m going to have buy a new iron, as the old one is past being cleanable. This might help me keep the new one clean.

Using starch - cleaning the iron afterwards

Iíve been using a lot of starch on my current project because it needs to be very accurate and includes a lot of sewing on the bias. Now my iron is leaving dirty marks on the fabric. I think itís too...

Thanks. My older Janome doesn’t have the looped metal bar on the left, which makes it much easier. The picture in the manual suggested that the place on the presser foot where the screw is inserted...

This one is worse than that. Even if I forget about the foot holder and just try to get the screw into place on the presser bar, it won’t go. It’s as if the screw is too long (and I did check that I...
