Colonial Needle Giveaway and Sewing Maintence

Image
Have you ever been sewing and your machine
starts making a thunking noise?
Thunk, thunk, thunk - seems like
it is really having an issue sewing?
You my friend have a dull needle
and need to replace it.

I recently took my two machines
and had them clean, oiled, and adjusted
for $15 a machine. A group of sewers from our library
called a man and he came to the library
and did machines for 3 hours one after another.
We got a better deal than if we sent our machines out.
A few needed parts and he took those back to his shop.

Speak to your Guild about hosting a clean out!

Once every couple years it is a good idea!


The wonderful people at Colonial Needlesent me
the new Machine NeedlePack II
to try out and give one away to one of you.

I really love mine to store all the
different sizes I have been getting!

Once I start using them I can store them in the pack by type/size!
It came with great chart for choosing the correct needle for the job!

The quilted fabric pack just folds up for easy storage!
With so…

I miss her terribly!
