Skin Deep



Just about all of us have a mobile phone, and we love to personalize them with unique covers.  Finally someone in the sewing world has caught onto this and now we have the same option for our sewing machines.  Brand new from Bernina come Skins! Currently available for selected models, you design the skin with the Skin Designer and then add your own personal touch to your Bernina.

Technically Speaking.

Winding a bobbin sounds like a pretty simple thing to do, but there are a couple of hitches that can trick us all up.

Firstly, its tempting to wind a pile of bobbins so that you are always prepared, especially for embroidery machines, but its important to remember that the bobbin winding motor of your machine wasn’t made for long periods of use.  Try not to wind more than 3 to 4 at a time.

Also, having the right tension is important for getting the right bobbin.  Check that the thread is going where it should and not around any extra hooks or loops.  Incorrect threading when winding the bobbin can make your bobbin either too loose giving poor stitching results, or too tight which will cause it to heat up so that it either breaks or can’t be removed from the winder.  As cliche as it sounds, refer to your instruction book.

And finally, and this little point causes big trouble, only use bobbins for your brand of machine.  The wrong bobbin will give poor stitching results.  As soon as you get your new machine home, throw away the old metal ones kicking around your sewing room!
