Sometimes you can cut corners
And sometimes you better follow the di-structions to the letter.
Sometimes when you sew old t-shirt pieces together, you just do it with whatever’s in the machine.
And sometimes when you try to sew really thin ponte polyester knit, you need to change the needle. You need to use the recommended ballpoint or else the stitches don’t catch, don’t stick and you panic that you’ll need a brand new machine come Christmas.
When in fact you just need the damn needle very publicly recommended for knits. El punte redondo.
