Oh Yea!

So it's no secret that I am a beginner at sewing. Actually is there is a level before beginner that would be me. My machine broke back before Christmas and I just now took it to get fixed. I had a quick lesson at the Sewing machine repair store as well. Want to know what the lesson was? You can't just put any Singer brand bobbin in a Singer machine. Apparently different machines require different bobbins. Yep, I didn't know that and used the wrong bobbin causing the bobbin casing (not sure if this is the official term or not) to break thus the machine wouldn't work. The man looked at me like I was an idiot. I can't be too mad at him because he didn't charge me the full price for repairing it and even sold me some of the correct bobbins. I now have my sewing machine back and am trying to decide on what to make on it first.

Oh no! I guess I'm glad I read this before trying to switch bobbins!
