Sewing Machine Issues:
I was sewing a skirt last night and during the final stretch, my sewing machine started being nutty. The thread from the needle gets tangled around the bobbin. I didn't do anything to provoke this. It is very annoying, because I want to wear that skirt! How can I fix this?

Meduim/Craft Suggestions:
I am getting surgery on my ankle on the 21st. I will be on crutches, and not working, for up to 6 weeks. After I'm done stocking up on things for my fish and for my bunnies, I want to buy new stuff to make stuff with. Hopefully I will only be cruising garage sales, but I kind of want to do some resin experimenting, too.. So does anyopne have a medium they really enjoy using or a craft that they really enjoyed doing?

I have a very old machine, but 9 times out of 10 the problem you described is fixed when I simply give the machine a good cleaning and oiling. Often fuzzies that get caught under the bobbin plate cause this for me. Also be sure your needle is not bent. I would try these simple fixes first and see what happens.

ATCs come to mind. They are small and you wouldn't have to walk around a lot to make then.  You could do the whole 100 themes gallery in 6 Weeks Wink

Good luck with your surgery

I knew you were going to say that! Cheesy I second that idea! Very fun!

Hope all goes well with your surgery! Smiley

I could love to make ATCs but I have no one to trade with and I don't really know how to make them..
Also I took my Singer into Jo-Ann's but the lady said she had "never touched a Singer " and she "couldn't help me".
Eventually I will open her up and have a look. Today I was lazy and spent my time redecorating one of my fish tanks.
