1  Oh My ! Lookie at all of my new skeins and whatnot in Spinning: Completed Projects by inhope on: August 19, 2007 07:37:07 PM





I am a teacher and since I have been off all summer I have been spinning my little heart out.
I love some of my new skeins!

I wonder if maybe this just happens to me, but some of my best color combos happen when I am down to my last bits of dyed fiber and I just spin it all together and see what develops.

I got my package from maiziemama weeks ago but I just got around to posting pics. I couldn't even wait and spun up the fiber into this really super pretty red, fire plied mix.I added in slubs of red Angelina Fiber and strings of red and orange novelty yarn scraps.
I was sooooo happy with the outcome.

8  HELP! I need some sewing machine advice Janome memory craft 4900 in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by inhope on: September 06, 2006 06:17:30 PM
uggg...I am so mad at this sewing machine, it is minutes from being tossed out the window.
o.k. here is the story:
For my birthday this year my mom surprised me by getting this sewing machine, the Janome Memory Craft 4900. I was using her old one, which worked perfectly up to this point, but now she wants it back. The problem is that I sew a lot of very thick things just as multiple layers of vinyl and felt and I don't think the Janome can handle it. I sew with the Janome and it seems like the part that houses the needle is pushing down so hard the vinyl/ felt I am working with that it wont feed threw the machine, it just stops and sews the same spot till the material rips. I have to sit there and force the material threw with my hands which makes the stitches look really bad. I don't know if there is some setting I can use or foot attachment I can buy to fix this problem. I REALLY need to be able to sew thick things and the salemans at the place my mom got it from swears that this sewing machine is powerfull enough to do it.
Please please help.


here are some of the specs of the machine from Janom's website

I just got my package of wonderful stuff from lulubean and my mind was blown because everything was so amazing.
She made me a super cute cupcake necklace and knit hat. Also she sent me some sugar sprinkles and made this felt robot that you can open up the tummy and take out a cupcake.
