It was suggested to me to start a blog. I have started blogs before. They never last long. I just don't have the gift of writing dedication to do it regularly.  Also, I don't have a lot to talk about lol But. I've spent some time unhealthy amounts of time reading blogs and on twitter and learned that it really does not matter how or what you write if you are writing for yourself and not overly concerned with getting negative feedback.   Hope I won't get it, but I'm prepared for it. And since I am new at this I need all the help I can get.

The title of this post is due to the fact that my sewing machine locked up today. I spent a few hours trying to figure it out, but the bobbin case is jammed up in such a way that I can't fix. Will be heading down to the local repair shop I just located online...I like that it is so close, but I loved the review that someone left. Something to the effect of the guy was old school (in a good way)  haha  Is there a bad way to be old school?  Anywho... Dead in the water. 

My name is Christine. I am a new quilter. I am a new sewer. I have dabbled through out my life with sewing here and there but never really seriously.  Now that I am getting serious I am finding a lot of things are not what I expected them to be. There is really a lot to learn and its complicated.  

With machine dead, now would be the time to study up. 

Sew-Long For Now...

p.s.  Lorna, this one's for you!

nice to meet you Christine.   Hope your sewing machine is back to "good health"  soon.  I just cleaned out my bobbin holder a couple days ago and it was so full of lint I'm surprised it wasn't causing me problems.  Look forward to seeing some of you finished projects in the future.   Keep on blogging and keep on sewing.   I can't imagine there will be any negative feedback so don't worry about that.  Sue

hi chritine, and welcome to mqp. there will be no negative feed back to your blog here. this site has the nicest and most friendly bunch of quilters on the www. and i hope your machine guru turns out to be as good, as instructional and downright NICE as my guy. who is also old school. you lube and clean your machine regularly? sometimes the bobbin area is plugged up with lint and thread. i have locked up my flywheel so tight they teased me about it when i went to retrieve it from the repair shop. learned the hard way ..every 10 or more hours of sewing...stop & clean and lube. but i had a kept getting stiffer...just a little bit more..come on my little machine...but no. so i saved no time and just barely made my deadline. lollol good luck w your machine and looking forward to pics as your quilting adventure advances.....
