It may not totally be your fault that your sewing machine is so confusing.

I just noticed that! Given my deathly fear of the "hoo-ha," I guess it's a miracle that I would even touch a sewing machine!

And why does the bobbin area look broken and mangled???

Now, everytime I touch the "dilithium crystal" I'm going to think of Scotty saying, "I'm giving her all she's got, sir!"
