It’s been a frustrating week for sewing for me with the reemergence an old (never solved) problem with my Pfaff. The machine repeatedly drops the top thread from the take-up lever midway through sewing which results in a dramatic crunch from the bobbin, horrible bunched up thread and swearing from me.
I’ve tried everything. New bobbin, new needle, different thread, adjusted tension, you name it and every time I sew more than a couple of inches without a problem I allow myself to hope I’ve fixed it and then it happens again!
The only positive thing is that having sat down to write this and managed for the first time to put into words the problem I’m having, I have found a possible solution online. Someone has suggested threading the machine from the other side so that it crosses over itself. Please let it be that simple!!
So anyway, just one thing from me this week, one of Liz’s scrappy log cabin blocks for the FQR Bumbling Honeys Bee. (Just don’t examine the stitching on the back too closely Liz, bunched stitching and all that!) Great fun to put together, despite everything…
What have you been up to?
