In a bid to rationlise the equipment in my sewing room, I recently sold the second of my two overlocker machines leaving me with just one Janome overlocker machine. I still have several other sewing/embroidery machines but more about those another time. This afternoon I was beavering away with the making of Jubilee Cherries print dress, using the sewing machine and overlocking all the seams. For no apparent reason the overlocker started to make a grungchy noise – well that’s the best way I can describe it! I undid the covers and gave the mechanics a good dust, changed the needle and re-set the foot. Still no improvement so I have had to pack up the machine and will take it across to Salisbury, Franklins Sewing Centre tomorrow in the hope that Steve can fix it – quickly!!
