Today I thought you might like some information on preventive sewing machine maintenance. So With that in mind over the next couple of days I will provide you with a different tip to keep that sewing machine running.1. Is on the needle you have in your machine. I have spoken to some ladies that never change the needle in their sewing machine unless it breaks You should be changing them every 4 to 6 hours, the needle on your sewing machine is passing though the fabric thousands of times per minute, so as your needle becomes bent or blunt this may cause skipped stitches, runs or pulls in the fabric, broken or shredding of your thread or it might even damage your machine. And when you do change your needle make sure it is all the way up and facing in the correct direction.

Independence Trail by Minick and Simpson
Independence Trail is a reckoning of a family’s trek across our country in it’s centennial year. Inspired by journals from several young ladies of the time, it reflects on an imagined journey from the Midwest to a new home in Oregon. Leaving their family farm and orchards on the Great Lakes and making for a new place of bounty near the Pacific, we fill this family’s landscape with the fabrics of the time. Domestic simplicity with the hope of an abundant future – these fabrics evoke the time and the inspiration of that journey.
We have had a busy first day and there are three more to come, so pop in and see the newest quilt designs from Catharina at EPIC in Mitchell, Canberra
Wow! what a great show, the enthusiasm and smiles from all our customers make it all worth while. I am sure that we had something for everyone. We were all so busy on our stand that we didnt have a chance to look at the quilts, but from what we heard they were superb. We are now concentrating on small projects for you to enjoy as times are tough. This way we are creating things that can be used from your stash (you know, all those things that are in the back of your cupboard – the retirement fund!). Howard has been busy with the sewing machines – Pfaff being his new best friend. If anyone has seen Helen Goddard’s work you will see what the Sweet Sixteenths by Pfaff are capable of! Well done Helen! In Launceston at the moment and the locals have been great! We are looking forward to seeing you all today and hope that this support will continue. Keep the craft shows alive! See you all at next years at AQC.
