Old Dog, New Tricks
It was a good lesson. We had to take the whole thing apart to get the threads out of the back of the bobbin area. Now, I’m not afraid of taking the machine apart. I know how it goes back together.
I practiced new stitches and it ran very well. It’s fun.
I went upstairs and told my old faithful Jewel (a Singer 301, two-tone mocha and cream) that she would not be abandoned. The little Jem does a fine job with fancy things, but the good old 301 has the most beautiful, even straight stitch in the world.
