There have been so many times when I have been at the fabric store, known I needed something for my machine, but just can't remember the specifications so that I could buy the correct item. This usually means I either come home with the wrong thing or come home empty handed. So, I made this handy dandy credit-card sized booklet to bring along with me to the fabric store. There's also room for info about your machine's maintenance and for measurements. Originally it was just going to be the card but then I thought it would be so easy to turn it into a tiny booklet and I could keep other notes or shopping lists in there as well. Since it's credit card sized it will tuck right into a pocketbook or wallet.
I do feel a little weird exposing the fact that I cannot remember my own sewing machine model number. That is why I say this might be a bad idea. Part of me feels like I could just be making a fool out of myself here. I suppose that is a risk I am willing to take.
Here's the link for the file.
You will need Adobe Acrobat reader which you can get for free if you do not already have it installed.
You'll find this is a two page file. Go ahead and print out both pages. I recommend printing page one onto cardstock and page two onto regular paper. After you print page two turn it over and print it again on the other side - that way your pages will be two sided.
Next cut out your pieces. Fold each piece in half like this:
stack up your folded pages and place them inside the card. Staple along the spine and your booklet is almost complete. Just fill out the specifications for your machine then tuck into your pocketbook for your next trip to the fabric store.
I know this is going to help me out and I hope it helps you out too. If you are someone who has purchased supplies for your machine so many times that you know your model number like you know your address then well....um... you are probably laughing right now.
