Patterns Discussion / Pattern Sales Ain't Wot They Used to Be!
« on: May 21, 2021, 20:28:39 PM »
Got the latest pattern sale email from Jaycott's. If you're into sewing Cosplay stuff fill your boots! Pattern sales used to be across the entire range of the individual brand but it seems these days that it's only small portion of patterns on sale. Am I missing something? Any idea why the sales seem to be so meagre?

Are Pfaff and Husqvarna Viking Hoops interchangeable? I want to buy a metal hoop for my Husqvarna but it's out of stock, however the Pfaff equivalent is in stock. Very tempted!

Fun with Fabric / I Wish

I wish more online fabric shops could include short videos on how the fabric handles. Minerva Crafts do it and I've never made a mistake in ordering the right type of fabric for any of my projects. (not related to Minerva!).

Second wish for more fabric shops on the south coast of England which stock a good variety of reasonably priced fabrics. I have to rely on an annual trip to Goldhawk Road to get anything decent  :vintage:

Patterns Discussion / Discounted Patterns

Got to wondering the other day if we are ever going to see discounted pattern offers again from Vogue, Simplicity etc.
The US Vogue site currently has 30% off, but not a whiff of a sale in dear old UK  :'(

Leafing through the new Love Sewing and came across this shambles of a made up pattern. Wouldn't you think with all the money they charge for their patterns they could afford an iron?  :angry:

Embroidery and Embellishment / Peggy's Stitch Eraser
« on: April 14, 2020, 13:55:13 PM »
I'm looking at the Peggy's Stitch Eraser and at the exorbitant price. Do you think there is any difference between it and a normal electric beard clipper? :sew:

Embroidery and Embellishment / Machine Embroidery Removal Tool
« on: October 02, 2019, 09:33:57 AM »
I was looking at for a tool and saw the Peggy Stitch Eraser tool and then I saw the price! I wonder if an ordinary electric Ladyshave eraser might do the same thing (tried using single use razor but not much luck there).

What do people use to remove machine embroidery mistakes/disasters etc?

Overlockers & Coverstitchers / Stitch Width problem
« on: July 18, 2019, 18:49:48 PM »
Hi, I have a Brother 4234D overlocker. My problem is that when I set the stitch width to 7mm I get a 3mm stitch on 4 thread normal overlocking stitch! The front dial is set to 7mm, the differential knob to 1.0 and the length to 4mm. I can't understand why I get 3mm stitches with this setting unless I am missing something obvious which is probably par for the course for me!

Can anyone help?

Thanks xx

Can anyone recommend a UK wholesaler that supplies purse frames, preferably the glue in ones.

Thanks xx
