I took the whole machine apart, and put a drop of oil in the designated places. I should have taken the machine apart section by section, but I was trying to follow the photo shown on the sight that describes how to fix you machine. Lesson well learned. Now that I am through with making the cover I will more than likely start on the jacket again. Of course there is also one jacket that I need to finish for the fall.......it is fleece and I would like to put a flannel lining in it, as I think it would be warmer, and I can get away with wearing it during the month of October. I will volunteer for the sewing expo this year, and take some photos. Hopefully I will get a chance to meet Peggy Sagers face to face.
I also noticed that on Craftsy.com that Sandra Betzina will be teaching a course on pants I believe. So far my fall is going to be busy. Still looking for another way to make some bags, that might bring in extra change, however I don't have a set style just yet. Monday or Tues. I will check out Ikea.......they do have some fabric for Pillows and I could possibly make bags as well, but would like to have a lining backing. I am really going to come up with some type of design. But first things first. I am going to get Peggy's dress form as I watched her video on how to add more padding to make the dress form almost to my shape. She suggest that the forms that have the dials are not that reliable, and with taking a padding or adding padding is a more accurate and smoother way to a good dress form. All i have to do is take my measurements. The next step is another Iron. I've really run my Rowenta in the ground. The cord now gets hot, and that's not a good sign. So I will look for another style. More than likely I should have this around the second month of the year.
