My First Sewing Machine!
1. The tension is very finicky and I have spent more time unjamming the machine then sewing.
2. The front-loading bobbin is a pain.
3. The self-threading needle option is useless and it's faster and easier to thread it myself.
4. At this rate, I will spend more time on my machine then sewing so I'm going to return it and try out a few other machines. I've killed one sweater and two spools of thread; not good.
Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
