A couple days ago, I was arguing with my Grandmother’s 15-91. She had just finished the straight line ditch work and had done a phenomenal job at it.
Then, I started the FMQ and she’d sew a bit and then start to skip stitches. I rethreaded. It was awful hard to get the thread through the eye of the needle. It didn’t help. I rethreaded again. Didn’t help. I walked away. This was one of the same problems I had with her several months ago.
Has anybody figured out the problem yet? I’ve given you the clues.
Next morning, I pulled out the owner’s manual and took out the thread again. I decided to replace the needle. And, that’s when I caught it.
The needle was in the wrong way.
What an idiot I am. I’ve probably put every needle in this machine backward. No wonder she wouldn’t sew. I’m surprised she did the straight line work, but to her credit, she did, even with her handicapped needle.
Now, she’s doing wonderfully at those rope wreaths and I can hardly wait to show them off. But, they need to develop a little bit more first.
Everybody have a great day and I hope your sewing problems are as easy to solve.
