21  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Ottobre Mozart Linen Vest, Beethoven Dress Shirt, Jodhpur Linen Pants on: March 31, 2013 05:41:02 PM
For Ottobre patterns, usually there aren't pattern pieces for belt-loops, there should be measurements given under the cutting instructions
22  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / tension issues - new brother PE 770 on: March 19, 2013 08:16:07 AM
I have a Brother PE770, I got it in January, so its pretty new. I was doing a bunch of applique designs, and did 5/6 of them, and noticed that each one I did, then tension got a little more off. By #6, it was a huge mess!

The upper thread is super loose, its loopy on the top, and on the back, no bobbin thread shows at all, its just like 1 piece of thread going through all the back and forth of the upper thread. So on the back, all you see is loose, sometimes tangled, upper thread. Its eating through tones of thread.


I tried:
- new needle
- cleaning everything including in-between the tension disks
- changing the upper tension everywhere from -8 to +8, the whole range it can go.
- tried a few different designs
- different thread
- removing bobbin and casing, cleaning everything (there was no fuzz) and putting it all back
- adjusting the screw slightly on the bobbin casing
- different hoops
- leaving it overnight to see if it would magically fix itself in the night
- and finally, yelling at it.

Nothing made any difference at all.

Now what???

The nearest "Brother authorized" dealer is 2 hours away, and this thing is basically brand new. And I need to finish this outfit by friday!

Levi's package from Brian:



He has been using all of this stuff!   The shark is a pencil case, with a zippy mouth.  Levi put his colored pencils in it to take with him to do his schoolwork on the go.   The little round zip pouch he keeps a lego guy in that he likes to carry around.  And the notebook he has been using as a sketch pad, and also wrote down some dinner ideas he had.   

Thanks Brian!   


We are still trying to find out what happened to Brian's package from Levi, I've been remaking everything because the post office was no help when I contacted them.  Mailing new stuff tomorrow.

Look what I got! 

Wrapped up:


Fun erasers for Levi:


These are yoga socks, they fit perfectly, I'm wearing them now!   They are also great for sewing, which I usually do barefoot but its been cold.



Please excuse my weird looking arm:   Rainbow bracelet with "Levi" on it.  I love the fun mix of different beads.  Its comfy too!


Magnets:  The cups I used to keep track of water intake (I have to have 100 oz a day, with the glasses I use, thats 8, so I just flip these upside down as I drink to make sure I get the right amount -very useful), and dishwasher magnet, so we know when to load and unload:


Such a great package!
