Today is the first day of this new blog. I will occasionally write something I'm doing, thinking about, learning or even grousing about.
My sewing machine, the wonderful Janome 6600P, has a walking foot built in and miscellaneous buttons to push. It also has a speed regulator. I usually have it on a slower speed because it can take off without me when it's set at the full Indy 500 speed record. That's about 1000 stitches a minute or some other scary thing.
The other day I was working on a panel wall hanging just for the practice. I plan to conquer that machine one of these years! I've had the machine for more than a couple of years and could never seem to stop the needle exactly when I wanted to. It always stopped too soon or ran over a stitch or two. Have you ever had that problem?
Then it dawned on me. I could stop a couple of stitches prior to where I needed to stop and just push the "up/down" button until the needle was where it was supposed to stop. Eureka.
