Karen shows us just how versatile this old industrial Singer machine can be in her hands – but inspiration for us all; and Karen confirms that you can never have too many threads!
Karen just loves her old Irish Singer sewing machine and you can’t fail to be inspired by her skill with just thread and the basic zig-zag stitch.
We get to see how with no feed dogs and changing the tension in the bobbin, Karen creates lace and other works of art which she adds to her textile projects. This has obviously been a life-long love affair to create this level of skill however we can see how easy it is to cover threads, use thicker threads, to create texture.
