Sewing machines: don't buy cheap. Like 60s Fenders, you can't go wrong with a Singer. But you'll be replacing it in 2 years if you get a bottom-of-the-range one.

Or you could learn to sew better.

Pro-tip - don't sew patches while you're wearing the garment concerned.

Or thimbles. They are as cheap as chips.

as usual, you have to pay for quality. if you rarely sew anything, just learn how to do it better.

Yeah... as ploesj says, practise is the key, I'm afraid. Gayly, sewing is one of the very few things I have an innate talent for.

Sewing's a very different discipline to knitting dollface. Related, certainly, but they're two behemoths of dexterity. With sewing, there's more room for being thoughtful with your stitch on the hop. Making the right choice of stitch is very important. With knitting, you should have a set plan before you even go near the needles, and deviating from that plan is out of the question. OUT OF THE QUESTION.

shit. I was hoping that my "sewing up little booties" comment would prompt more "knitting vs. sewing" nerd-rage, again*.

Get yourself a Singer. Preferably an industrial one.
It'll go a long way and even sew through 3-4mm leather, if needed.

I'm having difficulty finding a use for dollface at work.

if I use it on a minion, I'm likely to get slapped. if I use it on the tech guy (that I typically 'chief'), I'll come out looking gay (like Rob and P Bradders).

HALP!

ps: I've tried twice (unsuccessfully) to rep glice. oh, the burning shame of it all!

dollface the tech guy, then redeem you from gayness by dollfacing one of the minions.

too overt. the trick lies in only making them suspect that I'm making fun of them.

it has to come like a stealth fighter in the night.
