I have to confess my favorite decorating style is "found style" I love thrifting, repurposing and using what I have decorating. I dvr shows like Redesign, Material Girls, Design on a Dime, Decorating Sense and Freestyle becuz they fit my budget and my idea of decorating. I'm not a fancy person and probably never will be. I don't want to have anything that if my child get a sticky hand print on or colors on w/a crayon that I'd be upset about.
Lately, I've been in the "I really like our little place" mode. My mom is visiting and helping me do a few thing around it. And as I look around, it not a bad little adobe. The kids love it, it's a safe neighborhood, we live with in 5 miles of 4 parks, convienent to shopping and the schools are excellent. Sometime I have to admit I get envious of bigger spaces...but as my mom has pointed out some things that make me appreciate what we have...a lovely home.
bumping... This was a good thread
My sweet mother has come for a week to help me declutter big time. I needed someone that could be ruthless and didn't have the attachment to the stuff that I did, yet someone that I wouldn't be too mortified to let into my disaster zone. So far, so good.

I have a Pfaff and when that happened to me, It was becuz I didn't have it threaded EXACTLY right. I had missed on of the little hooks in the thread path, such a little thing, but my serging was a big ole mess! Hope you figure it out. I'd check my thread path very closely.
I'm going to disagree w/the previous poster. I think they suffered from a loss in status/reputation and crap production for many years, but I think since acquiring other brands and there r&d the quality of their machines have improved. A machine w/ a warranty is a machine w/a warranty. Singer's holding company owns Pfaff, Viking and White. If you would buy one of those you shouldn't hesitate to get a new singer. Now that being said, I think I'd go for a midrange machine...
Assume! Let us know what you get!
I work, have 4 children, am in several civic groups and volunteer about 8 hours a week. What I do is break things into smaller task. I wash all the fabric at once. Then I might cut out or trace several patterns at once. Then I might cut out several projects to work on all at once so that they are ready to go. I plan out what I'm going to sew ahead of time so that I know that I have everything to start and finish the item...buttons, thread, elastic, whatever. I sew from my...
