I'm gonna need a bigger house soon!

I make myself fold laundry and put it away. That isn't my housekeeping problem. Not dusting is my curse. By the time washing, vacuuming, etc is done, my energy is all used up or its time to start over on other chores.

Just did that the other day. And then when I put the block together it was all wrong. Jack to the rescue!!

True, true, so true. Or you sew it back the same way and it was wrong in the first place.

I've done both.

Been there, done that....just last week, in fact.

Been there and done that

Oh yes......that’s when we bang our heads on the table.....

That's why I don't sew!🙄

Or .. ripping it out and doing it wrong AGAIN!!!

I've done that!

Done that!

So true!

Oh no!!!

Just a caution about your sewing machine needles⚠️. We are seeing quite a few machines coming in with problems caused by a budget brand of needles being sold at some department stores. These needles are made so poorly that they will actually cause your machine to not sew properly.

To demonstrate - the needle on the left is a Schmetz brand needle size 80 and on the right is the department store needle size 70. This size needle should be finer than the Schmetz, and as you can see, not only is it thicker, but it’s also longer😱! Other needles in the same department-store-pack are made backwards or are bent. Consumers are purchasing these needles in good faith, and then spending hours trying to find the cause of their sewing machine problem, all the while certain that it can’t be their machine needle because it’s a brand-new pack😤. And the worst part about this is that newbies to sewing, who are keen to get involved in this hobby that we all love so much, think that the problems that they are experiencing are caused by them doing something wrong, and with a hit to their confidence, they just give up🙄.

No matter if you have an enormous machine that you use every day, or a small one, that you get out every now and then, we recommend using brand-quality needles like Schmetz, that you can purchase from all good sewing stores. Share this post with your sewing friends

Excellent advice

I have found this to be true of the Universal needles. Too long .

I have used Schmitz needles for 49 years and would never trust anyone other brand
