I have decided that we can no longer be friends. You are a mean, mean fabric. You leave weird residue on my machine needle:
Your dots pop off and stick to my iron no matter how low a setting I put it on, but I must press you to get a crisp hemline.
And worst of all, machine stitches skip so much on you, it is driving me insane!!!
You made me so frustrated yesterday, I cried all my eye makeup off and contemplated throwing my machine out the window. Then I borrowed a friend's machine, thinking mine was broken, and am having the same issues! (Although I now realize that I really really want a new machine for Christmas.) You make a very pretty dance skirt, but you are not worth all the sweat and tears. And were it not for the fact that I already bought yards and yards of you for my church's Christmas musical, you would be in the trash can.
I hope we never meet again!
Seriously, does anybody have any tips for working with this stuff? I have tried just about everything: adjusting the tension up and down, sewing on the opposite side of the fabric, stretching the fabric, switching machines. I have 6 more dance skirts to make and don't want to make myself completely crazy. Thanks!
