So after yesterday's post I had A LOT of people tell me in the comments that they have had trouble with their Brother sewing machine and shirring. Some of them said that Brothers are known to not shirr fabric.
I actually have a Brother! And I have to admit that I noticed how my shirring was a lot less bouncy than it was with my old sewing machine. But I didn't really think much of it because I don't do a lot of shirring.
But your comments got my wheels spinning. Then T.Navis suggested this tutorial by Creative Heart. It looked like an easy fix and since it dealt with getting inside the machine and tinkering with its insides, I was all over it.
So I tried it and....WOW! Like WOW!!!! Night and day!!
I made a little video tutorial for any of you with Brother's who have been shirr deprived for so long.
I think this would work for anyone who has trouble shirring. I'm basically tightening the tension of the bobbin. If your sewing machine is giving you trouble shirring, take a look at this video and try to see if you can do the same to yours.
The power of the internet! If we all started a topic on world peace perhaps we could change the world;)
And thanks to Creative Heart for being so smart!
