Here is a really "dumb" question from a person who has been sewing
since age 10 - Which is the proper way to hand turn the hand wheel of
the sewing machine? Okay, you put your right hand on the wheel with
the thumb facing you and the little finger to the back. Now, do you
turn the wheel clockwise with the thumb going over the top toward the
rear? Or do you turn the thumb down and under, counterclockwise?
One of my machines seems to prefer the 'down and under'. I'm sure I've
always sewn turning it clockwise. Maybe it likes 'down and under'
because I have the bobbin threaded and put in the wrong direction.
What do you use on your Viking, Kate?
This makes me feel really silly. I can't let my mind get funny yet. I
feel like my Mom who says it's hell getting old.
