It's uber important to keep your #sewingmachine lint-free. Refer to your manual for instructions on removing the needle plate so you can get out any lint from under feed dogs, under the needle plate, and in the shuttle area of the bobbin. Do not use canned air as it can force the lint into places it shouldn't be, especially important if you sew on a computerized machine. #tips2sew #tipsytuesday #sewing101 #berninaselfie

I know I don't have to convince many of you that this struggle is real- I'm calling it idea insomnia. Have you ever been laying in bed, when all of a sudden- eureka! you suddenly have a brilliant idea? Well as it turns out- there is research that shows it's a very real thing. Did you know Salvador Dali famously connected surreal paintings to dreams, and Paul McCartney says the melody for the song Yesterday came to him in a dream?
I'm curious to know how many of you waken from idea insomnia and take action? What successful projects have been set out into the universe from them- tell me in the comments below.

➡Universal needles have a slightly rounded top & are good for general purpose applications on works and sturdy knits.
➡Jersey needles have a medium ball point tip designed especially for knit (tshirt like) fabrics because it slips between knit fibers and will not cut or damage them while sewing.
