Great post, every thing is now clear!
Thanks, Marlene. I knew this would help!! Best wishesEllie
This is very apposite - I have been trying to find out how the feed dogs drop - on my newish machine!
Thanks, Toffeeapple. I haven't discovered how to do that on my Janome - hmm, perhaps I'll have to try and decipher the manual again! Good luck with the feed dogs!Best wishesEllie
I know how to do it now, I contacted this lovely lady:https://susieddesigns.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/my-trusty-janome-7025-sewing-machine-review/I don't know if your machine is the same as mine but if it is, you take off the extension table which includes the accessory drawer and there is a switch underneath!
Thanks, Toffeeapple. I shall have a look and see if mine is the same. Thanks for the tip.Best wishesEllie
I always wondered what those things were called, and now I know!
Thanks, Tracy. I know, it all makes perfect sense, doesn't it?!Best wishesEllie
Lol, this is so true :-)!
Thanks, Mirjam. It really made me laugh!Best wishesEllie
By the way, I am so sorry for my absence on your blog Ellie... I read all your previous posts and hope to keep up again from now on :-)! Love from Mirjam.
Thanks, Mirjam. Don't worry at all - it is an added extra (and really lovely) if anyone comments, but it isn't a problem if they don't.Best wishesEllie
Haha that is funny and so true Ellie-I have had a sewing machine for years but am still no wiser as to what everything is called, or even what it's all used for!Best wishesAlison xx
Thanks, Alison. I know what some things are called, but sometimes, 'spinny thing' etc. makes more sense! Have a good rest of the weekBest wishesEllie
This one is for me! My machine does everything but coffee :-)Amaliaxo
Thanks, Amalia. Whoever thought of this knows exactly what a sewing machine is like! I would love a sewing machine that could make tea...Best wishesEllie
