Greetings from snowy New England,
It's a great time to hunker down and sew costumes, don't you think? I'm working on figure skating dresses for a show coming up in February. Perfect work for a blizzard.

Here's this issue's sewing tip:
"My upper thread is breaking! Why?"
These are the most common causes:
-The needle is in backwards
-Machine is threaded wrong
-Tension is too tight
-The needle is dull or bent or too long for the machine
-Thread is too fat for the needle being used
-There's a burr on the needle or throat plate
-The take-up spring is bent or broken
-Threads are not pulled back under presser foot when you start sewing
-Lint or dirt buildup around the bobbin area
