I had put off working on reborns because I knew I needed to sew up the fronts of both body sleeves. The question was, do I sew it by hand or get out the machine? You can see my decision and where the hour went while I got it unstuck. Over the years evidently the oil had solidified so the needle would not go up and down. By forcing it I finally got it to go. Then I spent a 1/2 hour getting the tension set right. I started to sew on the body before it was 100% fixed and with the first seam in the doeskin I found it was perfect for that heavier fabric. In minutes I was done with the machine and wondered if I had saved any time. . .
