{PULL SOME STRINGS} bought a “lot” of #grozbeckert needles from an old manufacturer on ebay.  these are good for only specific industrial #sewingmachines, so the find seemed a bit miraculous πŸ”–βœ‚

this is an easy homemade #tubeturner from a wire #hanger.  notice a large j-shape hooks under foot and is grasped between the knees, with a narrow shepherds hook tip atop. the tube is partially slipped under the hook and reversed. the trick for flipping is the small diagonal cut in the upper hem of the tube which creates a hook tab and eases the fiber tension for initial inversion.  rolling back without snags or drops is a matter of aim and tension.
Long torso ladies, @dnellls testing some new #madamchino halter-romper patterns in both pants and shorts just for you. Pics are live this afternoon! #summer #ecofashion fashion #rompers

#fringe halters getting a trim
Sometimes the difference between a perfect stitch and yards of loose scratch is not the machine but the needle.  Dull shortened needles throw off stitch timing and snag thread.  Dont let it throw off your timing too!   #sewing #advice
