11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Singer Serger, looping/looper broken/issues. on: October 21, 2013 10:47:48 AM
It might still form the loops but I would think that the broken bits would catch on the other threads.  Your best bet would be to replace your looper.

You can use these to make your own bias tape.  They have several different sizes so you can accommodate your different needs.  You just cut your strips of fabric and run it through, pressing with an iron as it come out.
13  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cooking for Cancer on: September 10, 2013 03:30:01 PM
My Dad was recently diagnosed with brain cancer that spread from the lung cancer he didn't know he had.  They want to start him with radiation therapy to shrink the tumor in his brain before they do anything to treat the lung cancer.

Do you have any suggestions for easy meals that will be good for him?  I know we need to make sure he gets enough protein/calories but other than that I don't know what to fix.

Don't sweat it too much.  She will get past this.  It is all about control.  She feels like this is something that she can control in her life.  When you are a kid, everywhere you turn there is an adult telling you what to do, where to go. etc.  Everything will balance out in the end.  If you worry about her getting enough vitamins and minerals, just make sure she takes a multi-vitamin.

I have read that a good way to get kids to try new vegetables or fruits is to let them pick them out at the store and then help prepare them.  If they are involved with cooking the food themselves, they are more open to eating it.

I have not used this machine or any like it but I would think that if you are going to be doing the kind of sewing projects you described, this will not be enough machine for you.

18  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How on earth do you get patches to stay on shirts? on: May 16, 2013 12:12:00 PM
For my Girl Scout stuff, I would use clear thread and zig-zag stitch around the edge of the patch.  I never had any of them come off. 

I also put patches on work shirts for the company I work for.  They have a white background and I just use white thread and stitch with a straight stitch just inside the outer border.  I have never had one of my guys come to me saying they had ripped that patch off. 

What is he doing that is so rough on these patches?  Unless he is crawling through an obstacle course in full uniform I can't imagine what he is doing to be so rough on them.

I also agree with the other posters...if he is so ungrateful to you about these stupid patches, then he needs to learn how to put them on himself!!!

19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Serger or standard machine?? HELP! on: April 03, 2013 10:36:33 AM
Does your current machine fit your needs?  Do you find yourself frustrated with having to fiddle with it to make it do what you want?

If it fits your needs and works fine...then keep it and add a serger.  I love being able to quickly finish my raw edges and work with knits with my serger.

However, if you are frustrated with your machine, then it would be time to sell it and get you a new machine.

Maybe you could get the serger now and then in a few years when your sewing machine bites the dust, you can get the newer sewing machine.

I don't know if it will help much or not but I find that it makes a difference when I am putting the bobbin in to hold it down with one finger while threading the thread through.
