Ok, so I just got back from vacation. I tried it out, it wasn't hitting anything, so I tested a scrap piece. The needle goes down without hitting anything, but it is just putting holes in the fabric. It isn't sewing. It is also making a loud noise as it is moving and shaking harder than normal.
I need some help. My cat knocked over my machine and now it is not moving the fabric through. I took off the plate and cleaned out everything, but that didn't help. It's like the threaders are too low now. Is this something I can fix myself, or have to get serviced? Thanks for helping!
I have been searching for hours and can't find what I am looking for. I am looking for those rolled up travel bags. Could someone help me locate a travel organizer pattern or tutorial? I am willing to pay for it if necessary. Thanks so much
Don't know if it helps, but maybe try sculpture. I can't draw worth anything. Try shadow boxes with sculpty figurines of favorite animals. Like a fairy and her environment or something. There are other types of clays that you can fire in your oven.
You can also try doing a plaster sculpture. That's easy enough. You get a 5 gallon bucket with a 13 pound bag (it comes in a box at lowes in the paint section) of plaster of paris. And mix the entire bag into it. You can't just dump the entire bag in at once, but bits in at a time, don't mix until you have all of the plaster in the bucket. Once you have all of the plaster in, mix the bucket and it will heat up, so don't use your hand, you can use a long stick or like the paint sticks at lowes. Mix it really well so you don't have clumps. Let it dry for about 3 days, until you can't imprint your finger into the top of the plaster. Does that make sense? The plaster will still be a little wet as you are carving, but will dry as you are carving. The plaster will be scratchable to the fingernail when finished. Also, you have to seal the piece with a clear spray paint when finished. If you have difficulties, don't hesitate to PM or post again, someone can help.
