2 Weeks of Sew Petite

Tuesday, August 4

Look what I found in the closet. Open, but still in the box.  I had pulled everything out to make sure all the parts were there… about 2 years ago when I bought it. Haven’t touched it since. Until yesterday.

Was I surprised to find NO on-off switch!! How the heck do I turn it on? Back to the manual. It turns on automatically by touching the foot pedal. Who knew!! And no LIGHTS!! LOL!! Is this a toy? Nope. Right on the box states. Not a Toy.

OK, back to the manual. The main thing, actually, THE ONLY THING I am interested in, is how to wind a bobbin. Lucky me, the bobbin it uses is the same as my Janome 10001. Now we are cooking!!

What a racket!! The needle thingy goes up and down the whole time it winds the bobbin.

But it got the job done. I wound four bobbins. Then I decided to give Sew Petite a rest after it sounded like it was going to fall apart.  😀

I don’t think it will last the 2 weeks my REAL machine will be away from home in the repair shop.  If you start to see me posting about beading, then you know Sew Petite is Sew Kaput.

    What a cute little (petite) thing! And did it fall apart? I hope not after a good rest.

    Usually those little machines are loud. I’ve got 2 sewing machines. One I use when the other needs repair. So far both are working fine.

    At least you’re sewing now. 😉

    Sew Petite is still hanging in there. Wound another bobbin, it wasn’t as noisy. Maybe the newness is wearing off. Yep, I am sewing and enjoying it. 😀
