When Dave and Jan heard about Multi-Needle Mondays at Eileen’s Machine Embroidery Blog, they decided to go on a sightseeing tour. They stopped to admire the view from the Baby Lock Enterprise.
Suddenly, Jan lost her balance and fell into a mysterious hole.
Fortunately, Hans was out for his afternoon workout. He acted quickly and used some Madeira thread to pull Jan to safety.
An investigation was quickly made. What is the purpose of the hole? Should the city order a manhole cover?
A final report was issued and the press (Eileen’s Machine Embroidery Blog) was quickly alerted to broadcast the important information.
We typically store the Needle changing tool (Threader) in that position. It appears someone forgot to return it there after it was used.
What is the Needle changing tool (Threader), anyway?
Let’s compare a single needle machine to a multi-needle machine. Here’s a close-up view of the needle area of a single needle machine. It’s easy to loop the thread with your hands through the needle bar thread guide.
But it’s not quite the same with a multi-needle machine. Look at all those needles – there is very little space between each needle. That’s the reason for the tool!
Take a look at the photo below showing the Needle changing tool (Threader) in action. The groove is designed to help guide the thread through the needle bar thread guide.
Dave and Jan decided to return to the original spot to complete their photo diary. They are looking forward to another exciting adventure to share with their friends.
