This week I had to share this fantastic bag from Fiona. Fiona has not used her machine for many years but has been taking my It's All About The Bags workshop. This is the second bag in the workshop, the lined bag and didn't she do well. I absolutely love the fabric combination. I can't wait to see what she chooses for the reversible bag.

Did you know your bobbin case had it's own tension screw? I didn't know that for a long time, but, if the tension is wrong on the bobbin, no amount of fiddling on the machine will rectify the problem. In this video, I show how you can test and adjust the tension so it works properly.
I don't know about you, but I often look at the fabric choices available in the United States and wish we had it here. Apparently, they feel the same about the yarn choices we have here in the UK. Wool Warehouse this week announced that the new Yarn and Colors range Epic is now available. Epic is an aran weight, soft 100% cotton and available in 100 shades!
