Probably this tip has been on before but it can always be repeated for all the newbies. If you turn you sewing machine on and it doesn't sew right and you do everything in your knowledge to fix it and it simple won't fix, do what I did. Last night I was having a fit over my machine not sewing correctly (all very tiny stitches). I decided that it was going to have to go to the shop for fixing. I told my husband that it had to go and perhaps its time for me to get a backup. I got up this morning and decided to give it one last go. I threaded the machine, again, and tried to sew. It felt like an almost brand new machine. I don't know what I did but whatever it was, it worked.
For the kicker, I found out that my husbands grandmother had a backup machine. Hmmmm.

Sometimes turning a machine off and back on will solve a problem. I do that with mine sometimes.
