  • This sounds very interesting…however, I’m an old gal and not quite up to all the social media: I don’t like Facebook, don’t tweet, or pin it….don’t know what ‘in’ or “g+” mean, so I may have trouble finding you again. I would love to get back to designing my own clothing and love my Brother machines. I sew mostly craft items and things for charity – pillow dresses and blankets, shorts, etc. and alterations to anything readymade. Would love to join the fun!

    • Hi KD – We’re here whether you are active on social media or not!! Please do stop by and read to your hearts content! Welcome to Stitching Sewcial! Best, Kimberli

  • Hi,
    I am new to embroidery and I love it.
    I have had trouble with thread bunching up under the project and it getting stuck. I have a Brother SE 400, and a Brother PE 770. I am using quality embroidery thread, and 90 weight Brothery bobbin thread. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?
    Thanks for any help

  • Looking forward to joining I embroider on my 2003 ULT my 2001 wore out on me and they say they can not fix . No Brother dealers close to me have to drive 125 mi one way to a dealer here in the Trenton Fl area.

  • I have an old Brother Machine my mum bought me when I got married 45 years ago….. I taught my daughters to sew on it, now I’m teaching my granddaughters on it…… By keeping it clean and healthy it still works an absolute treat! ( though I do have more up to date and modern Brother sewing and embroidery machines for myself)! I shall be encouraging daughters and grandchildren to follow your blog….( Don’t make it too American though we’re British)
