Needles pulled from their sockets...
Tightly woven and rusted Egyptian cotton
brings sewing machine to a grinding halt
over and over again.
Attempts at resolving the problem grew weirder by the hour.
... and needles,
...changing the stitch from 3step to simple zigzag,
...wetting the rusty areas hoping to reduce abrasion,
...rubbing oil onto the needle
Hope you had a nice day!
