my kids are taking a summer musical theatre class every weekday for the next two weeks. for this homeschooling mama, it's rather like what other moms experience on a regular basis. there's the chaos and rush to get out the door, then it's just me and baby. we do this every year and i always look forward to it as my own mini vacation at home - a staycation.
i began having tremendous trouble with thread breakage. after about the 6th time, i decided to change my needle even though it was pretty new because the tension looked perfect. that didn't help. i scoured the machine's manual, which is very basic. it's a good thing i'm a reasonably intelligent person, even after giving up brain cells to each child. (i do believe after 7 children that babies are made from brain cells, not the egg and whatnot.) i was able to piece some ideas together and decided to try loosening the bobbin tension and adjusting the top tension to match. scary! but it worked.
