I open buttonholes with a seam ripper
This isn't how to do it? But I was taught to do it this way in senior grade sewing class. I feel so betrayed.
My big issue at the mo' is my machine has never been cleaned or oiled. Bought the oil, never used it. And have not cleaned it. I did run over some needles with it also, but purely by accident because I didn't take them out in time. But not the tension seems offish. So, *sigh* it may need service. But its nice to know I'm not the only one with a machine in need of some TLC.
