I have very few sewing skills, other than what I make up as I go. I often find myself gazing longingly at my sewing machine wishing that I felt more confident. One skill that I have been working on lately though, is testing out different automatic stitch patterns (I'm sure there is a technical name for these) on my machine to make cute cards/paper goods. You should try it!Oh my gosh, duh! I should totally try that. I don't really know why I haven't.
So this week, I got all geared up to make a stitch sampler with my fabric du jour starting with the basic straight stitch. Except, my straight stitch wasn't straight.
Do you see how wonky it is? Like a wave? No amount a of needle changing or tension adjusting changed it. Is this normal? I just had my machine serviced in April so surely there isn't something out of whack....Right?
Has this happened to anyone else?
