Do Not Do This

I would not recommend getting your finger in the way of the needle when you are doing machine embroidery.  It is not pretty and doesn't feel very good either.  I'd show a picture of the wound, but it would probably make your stomach turn, so I'll spare you.  All I was doing was trying to smooth the fabric a little as it was going, didn't think I was that close, but unfortunately I got distracted and it surprised the heck out of me and went through my finger.  If you need to do something like that, be sure and stop the machine first!

  1. OH, I am sorry. I sewed myself the end of May and was both embarrassed (how could I do that?) and shocked (how could it hurt that bad?). You have my sympathy!
