Five Tips to Keep Your Sewing Machine Running Smoothly

Quilt Out Loud | Episode 109 | March 2010-Week 2

Watch out, Sew-mando has arrived! Jodie and Rob arrive at Magical Threads, which is just off the square in Dahlonega, housed in an adorable Victorian house. Rob dons his Sew-mando vest and Jodie quickly takes her leave to shop for fabric. A sewing machine dealer and repair person himself, Rob takes the opportunity to show you five tips to keep your sewing machine running smoothly between visits to your sewing machine dealer. Remember that your sewing machine manual and your dealer are both your machine’s best friends. Be sure to refer to them often for many hours of happy sewing. With the Baby Lock sewing machine cleaned and ready for sewing, Rob joins Jodie in another room at Magical Threads to see what the sewing project is for the day. And it’s a beauty! “Flowing Lines” by Elizabeth Rosenberg is from Skinny Quilts and Table Runners II. Rob and Jodie demonstrate cutting and sewing the free form curves of this easy, fun, and oh-so pretty table topper. The original is made of gorgeous silk. Jodie chose batiks for her edition of the project, to give you a different look.
