A few months ago Craftsy had a sale on their classes so I signed up for three sewing classes. One of those is Susan Khalje’s couture dress, finally decided to start with this class! I have been browsing online fabric shops and came across a gorgerous turquoise linen cotton blend, and most likely a chartreuse lining. I have not bought it yet because I wanted to browse the stores, but I am smitten with the turquoise! I’m excited, as I am not very familiar with couture techniques.

What I am wondering is, if your industrial machine is one that only works with a special thread that ‘twists’ the opposite way! Some do. If it is, regular threads will always break. Maybe? One possible solution anyway. :)
Hmm…I remember the woman was showing me how to use it when I picked it up- she did do something with the tension. I will keep that in mind- the machine was threaded but then it broke when I was trying to show it off!

What’s happening that it isn’t working? Does the thread break all the time?
Yes! I know I am doing something wrong but have yet to figure out what it is.
I had a dream I finally figured out how to thread my industrial sewing machine, and I was happily sewing with it. The machine was going so fast, the fabric was flying out the feed dogs!
Makes me wonder how long it’s going to take to figure that thing out. Yesterday, I tried something else and it didn’t work.
Can’t figure out how to thread my industrial sewing machine. I have tried a few things and the thread snapped, have a few more to try.
I wrote to the fashion department at two schools and sent a request to the company, in hopes of finding a user guide. I’m itching to use the machine, and to make something. I got bored with the dress I was making so I quit working on it despite almost being done. I need to go back to the fabric store to buy awesome plaid fabric I saw a few months back. I decided to make a jacket with it, and if I can find it I am hoping for a hot pink lining.
This is unacceptable.
