Looks harmless enough, doesn't it? Wrong. My own machine is being repaired, and I was loaned this. I can't make it do a single stitch. Threaded, rethreaded, bobbin checked, you name it. So instead I have been pre-washing
and in the case of this washing and washing again and cutting. I hate cutting. Hate it. But in the absence of anything else... This is a fraction of the cutting I managed. I get my machine back tomorrow, so let's see how long it takes to sew all together!
