November December 2022 Main Street Quilting Company

Dear Friends,
Happy Thanksgiving!!
I hate to break the news, but there are 30 more days until Christmas. We have got quick and easy gifts and gift ideas for you to share with your family.

Last weekend at our Christmas Project Mini Retreat we completed three cute projects for gift giving. We had a fun time sewing, watching the Bobcats WIN and meeting new friends. If you missed out, you can stop in or find the patterns online: Inside Out place mats, Bridget's Bagettes, and the Around the Square Runner

For evening classes we will be locking our store doors 5 minutes prior to the start of class so we can all start on time. Please make proper accommodations to honor that schedule. 

Machine Corner:

Tips and Tricks: Tension giving you fits? Threads nesting or bobbin thread being an issue? 

Try our TNT acronym for troubleshooting.
Thread- Rethread your machine and put your bobbin in the case again.
Needle- Replace with a new needle (do you have the right sized needle for the job?)
Tension- Adjust tension as the last resort.

***Most times rethreading and changing the needle does the trick.
