A beautiful finish!

Well, today I started to use my old kenmore and the bobbin thread ran out.
How to wind the thread with no manual, no idea, lol.
Then I noticed on the top there was a diagram and it looked easy, but it seems the bobbin pin is missing the lever, no idea where that went. So, I cannot sew with it unless I buy a bobbin winder and they cost as much as a cheap machine;) I will have to check with my dealer to see when my machine will be done and maybe I can go in and wind some bobbins in the store. It is frustrating since I have one piece to finish and almost done with my hippie piece and need a machine to add the borders.

So, for tonight, here is a photo by a follower who made my free easter piece. She did a beautiful job on the piece and love how she displayed it.

I wish I could send you my old machine. It winds a bobbin...but not much else! ;-)
Hope you get your bobbins wound soon and get back to the projects!

I don't sew but I bought a sewing machine last year - mainly for sewing an edge around my rug burlap etc. Last week the bobbin ran out. I tried and tried and couldn't remember how to fill the darn thing. I walked away in disgust and tried again a couple days later and did it first try.
Good luck

I hope you get your machine back soon. It can be frustrating to have broken equiptment.

I don't know what I'd do without my machine. I hope you come up with a solution soon. That little pinkeep/pillow is adorable. It's such a cute design.
