Diamond & Quattro Classes Renamed The classes formerly known as “The Diamond Class” and “The Quattro Class” have been combined into the “Sewing & Embroidery Class.” Kathy and Forest will continue to lead these classes on the 3rd Monday and the last Thursday of the month. The projects for each class will be the same so you will have two opportunities each month to enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow creative sewers. Because the US Thanksgiving Day Holiday falls on the last Thursday of the month of November and Kathy will be enjoying the sunny beaches of Mexico on November 17th – Forest will be leading both of this month’s classes on November 17. The project will be the completion of last month’s Anita Goodesign Paper Piecing Butterfly/ Confetti Flowers project. If you did not participate in last month’s Anita Goodesign workshop you may still purchase at kit at the store

TIPS: From ABC Embroidery
Bobbin Thread Shows On Front Side Of Fabric
Generally, when bobbin thread shows on top, it means that there's too much tension on top thread. Yet, before rushing to reduce top thread tension, first check these two issues:
- Check if top thread unwinds and feeds up well. Make sure that the spool doesn't slide off horizontal spool pin. If it falls - it creates too high tread tension by not giving the thread to unwind properly.
- Check that the needle is good, not sticky, and allows the thread to come through it easily. It should have a large enough eye.
Top Thread Shows A Lot On Bottom
To solve this problem, just tighten top thread tension until you see only one thread color on each side.
- Needle may break because of all the same reasons that thread breaks. Therefore, first follow all steps against thread breakage.
- Remove your hoop, and see what happens at the bottom. You mustn't see any thread loops there. If you see loops - carefully remove all stitches, reverse your machine several stitches back, and embroider them again.
- Needle may break if the design is too dense, too "fat". This is especially frequent on photo- stitch designs and sometimes on not properly digitized lace. To overcome this problem, try using a thinner needle. If this doesn't help - just avoid bulky designs.
This is the time to start planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas. So why not stop by Sewing Machines Express and check out all the wonderful new Sewing/Quilting/Embroidery machines and don't forget the Sergers.
November starts the great specials and financing . You won't want to miss out on a great deal.
