I jammed the arm on my old singer sewing machine a couple years ago, and have no idea where to take it to get it repaired. I live in Beaverton and used to take it to the sewing room (which is it's new name) before it was sold because their repair man was one of the best, well, he no longer works there and I have been told where NOT to go, but I haven't been told any good places to go. The only recommendation I have been given is to take it up to Sew Expo in Seattle, well, that's kind of an expensive trip for my sewing machine, which is why it's still not fixed. So if anyone can recommend a good place to go, I would be greatly appreciative!!
It's a singer fashion mate 362. I love this machine, it's what I learned to sew on and I want to teach my daughter on it.
So, I am in the market for an embroidery machine, I don't have a small fortune to spend (though I wish I did ). I want to use it mainly for embroidering faces on the plush I make. I hand sew some faces, but there are others where I would like to embroider the face on and since I sell my plush, I don't want to do it by hand, mainly because I suck at hand embroidery and it can be very time consuming. I would also like to be able embroider various designs on them. So, I guess my question is, what do you all use? What suggestions would you have when looking for a reasonably priced machine? What should I be looking for? This will be the first time I will ever use an embroidery machine, so any and all advice would be very much appreciated!!
It has been a few years since I have done a swap, but these are always so much fun! I am seriously considering this. I've has so much fun in the other LV swaps I did. Though I think I will be using a new visitor if I do join. Fred and George are getting a little tired
After having been gone from Craftster for quite some time, I was thinking about this swap, I'm so happy to see that it's still going on! I am hoping to join this again for the summer swap! Sadly, I think I will be retiring Fred and George, maybe not, I haven't decided 100% yet, but I am leaning towards making or finding a new friend to use. Everyone looks like they are having so much fun! I can't wait to see more
I made this for a friend who loves anything Disney! It's the first mermaid I ever made and really wanted to see how tail would turn out. I'm really happy with the way she turned out! It's also the first time I've brushed out yarn for the hair. I had to use so much yarn for the hair! lol and now I have a tone of extra yarn fluff, not sure what else to call it and I also don't know what to do with it. Can it be used for needle felting?? Anyway, here she is, my friend LOVED her!
As you can see, she's not very big at all, and I really like the way the head turned out. I'm trying a new style for the head and I think I'm going to keep it this way. I didn't use a pattern for her, just made her up as I went. Her arms are also attached with safety eyes so they can move!
So, it's been FOREVER since I've posted anything here! But, here's a few things that I've made that I'm super happy with! I'm stocking up for the craft fairs this summer and I'm going to be selling these adorable little babies! I plan on making blue ones too, don't want to forget about those baby boys!! Sorry about the dark photo, I don't have a camera and I was so happy with this, I didn't want to wait for the sun to come up before posting pics of it. Would love to know what you all think about her!
