Embroidery & Sewing Investigation

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.

      Thank you Jackie! Yes, multi-needle machines are great – and who knows.. maybe down the road you’ll have one too! In the meantime, I’ll include my team of miniatures on single needle machines to entertain you and others. 🙂

    I use 3 pen holders on top of my screen to hold my threader, my tweezers and my Snag Nab It. Handy and I no longer have to search for them! I would post a photo, but not sure how.

    I’ve had my machine for over three years and no one told me there even was a holder for the needle threader!! I’ve got to go find that spot, I can’t began to say how much time I’ve wasted in the past looking for that little tool.

    I have had my 10 needle for over two years. I always lose the needle threader and spend a lot of time looking for it. Now I find there is a special place on the machine which is meant to put it in. Very good information
    . Thanks for the tip.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.
