Well it finally happened folks…. My thread ran out. This post does not have any big exciting advancements in my quilting project, however, I did teach myself to thread my machine properly and how to refill a bobbin.
My sewing was going well; I had managed to get at least 4 squares completed. I had planned to do 10 squares as my set goal for the day, but my thread and machine had other plans. I was halfway through my square when suddenly something felt off. I check my square to find that the there was no thread. I searched the machine to make sure that it did not just fall out of the needle, but that thread was still threaded properly.
Time to face my fear of running out of bobbin thread.
I decided the first step should be to get my instruction manual out along side my phone. I got my instruction video out and began to watch it while referring to the instructions for further guidance. After a ton of rewinding a many failed attempts, I finally got the machine threaded properly for the bobbin winding! As I was about to start the winding process, Simon decided to come investigate and ‘assist’ me on my skills. Unfortunately, his solution was to chew on the thread, so I left to go get the spray bottle.
While I was gone my brother was so generous as to video (rather than stop) Simon as he proceeded to chew completely through my very long tedious threading work.
Thanks to the chewing work done by my cat, I had to start over with my winding the bobbin thread correctly. Practice makes perfect right?
After successfully rethreading the bobbin winder AGAIN, I got the satisfaction of seeing my hard work pay off as the bobbin refilled itself with the push of my pedal.
