Seeing as I'm doing a spot of self-education in the field of sewing, quilting and general craft loveliness, I grabbed it and stuffed it into my already overfilled bag of literary goodness.
|The Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook by Charlene Phillips|
I'd always dismissed them as being bits from other machines or not quite complete foots (feet?), however when my wonderful Father-in-law (who just happens to be a mechanical master at fixing any machine ever made!) came around a few weeks ago he retrieved the free-motion quilting foot, bent it back into its correct shape (oops!) and showed me how to set the machine up.
Now, with the help of this book I have identified another few items from my slightly more familiar collection of odds and sods that I will be using as soon as I can. It is amazing to think that these little things have been with me all along and I had no idea how much they can help in creating wonderful textiles!
Do you have any weird and wonderful attachments that you don't quite know how to use?
