In the Sewing Room, Part 3– What a fine machine

The human female’s machine is older than she is. Also more reliable. Not to mention better looking. (And quieter. And worth more.) She takes pretty good care of it, but she tends to leave it unguarded for long periods of time. Therefore, she really shouldn’t be surprised when…


Swip-swap! The bobbin runs out two inches before the end of the last seam…


Wobble-wobble! The presser foot is somehow loose…

Snap! The top thread breaks…


Ka-chunk! The throat plate is mysteriously loose…

And –click-click!–everything’s coming up zigzag.
