After all of the research last night to try and fix my machine, I woke up with some new knowledge but still uncertain of what was going wrong.
Of course this is the project I’m trying to time too lol
9:35am start – I watched this very interesting video about fixing the timing of the inside of the machine.
Inspired, I went to look at my machine and play around…
Dun dun duhh!!!!
O.M.G. this little guy at the top had lost it’s thread!
Here it is fixed:
I think this means that there wasn’t enough tension on the top string to pull the string on the bottom off the shuttle. This may have been causing the double-loop-underneath situation.
Next time, I will rethread the top of this machine sooner in the investigation process.
It’s interesting to know how everything works now!
9:57am – it’s sewing time!!
Yay! This collar is going to look so nice!
11:20am: time to take a break for tennis, lunch, grocery shopping, unfortunately dishes, & some baking ahead of visiting friends.
Hanging out with friend was awesome! I may actually have a future sewing buddy! Stay tuned for possible updates there in the future.
