This was the original craft thread, there are lots of tips on here so I thought it would be a good idea to nudge it up. :-D

It seems a shame to let this one sink to where new members may not find it as there are loads of tips on here. So I am taking the opportunity of nudging it up.

love Jean xx

More garden photos on the photo blog.

Is it new? If so, maybe you can contact somebody to ask advice. Maybe there is a forum if you put the machine name into search on google.


RStar Report 9 Jun 2013 18:17

Thankyou ladies! Its an Argos one, but its got good reviews. Ive kept the manual so I'll look, and give it a bit of a service. Hopefully I'll have some luck.


Von Report 9 Jun 2013 18:12

Which machine have you got? You could try thoroughly cleaning the machine. Change the needle and make sure that you have the same threads in the bobbin and top thread.
Does it need oiling? All these things can affect the machines performance.
Do you have a manual? It might have a trouble shooting page.

I can't help but hopefully somebody will be able to RomanyS.

Can anyone give me advice on the tension settings for a sewing machine please? Mine is at 3, although Ive experimented with all the numbers - and still the thread snaps and gets tangled, and the material gets stuck. :-( I have so many things I want to make but it seems impossible. Hand sewing will take way too long and Im quite slow at that.

Hopefully I have just added some photos of our garden to the photo blog. It was a horrific jungle and oveergrown with hardy geraniums when we got home last Wednesday. Pleased with it now after we worked on it for 3 days. OH just gone to the dumpt to get rid of a lot of the garden waste that won't fit in the garden waste bin.


AnninGlos Report 3 Jun 2013 14:42

Love the bag Ann and the photo is on the craft blog.


Annx Report 2 Jun 2013 17:24

Well, it's done now so I've asked Ann to put a pic on the blog.


Von Report 21 May 2013 21:54

Pleased to hear bag turned out well.
Look forward to seeing the photos.
Take care
