Do you get asked this question often? We bet you do! 

This is the title of one of my favourite blog sites (besides janomelife, of course!). Karen lives in London, England and I am very seldom disappointed by a post on her blog. She sews garments and she knits. She is way ahead of me with knitting. However I tend to pay more attention to her garment sewing posts which are just lovely. Cannot resist sharing one of her recent posts with you: Style Arc Nina Cardigan (which appears as though it is an Australian pattern company).  It attracted my attention as I have made so many of these types of cardi’s using other patterns – locally (North America) available ones such as Sewing Workshop Collection and Silhouette patterns . Karen of “Did you Make it?” does a helpful pattern review as well as including other useful information and her pics are good quality. Her commentary often has me smiling or even giggling. Enjoy.

      Hello Christine- Please seek assistcance from your place or purchase – your dealer is there to assist with lessons and service as needed. You might also refer to the manual to review threading instructions. Sometimes the take-up lever is missed, resulting in thread breakage.
