Machine Shaming

Maybe you’ve been seeing the particularly hilarious meme of Dog Shaming, where owners add signs recounting the shameful misdeeds of guilty pets. Well, on a day where my machine was being particularly difficult, I thought it time for a little public payback…

    What timing! I had just put my stitcher, Rudy, in a timeout for hideously crunching on one of my bobbins!

      We all know that machines (especially embroidery machines & computers) have a “critical need” switch hidden somewhere. The secret is not to let the “critical need” switch know that this project is critical. It only functions when the results are necessary and imminent to your well-being. Just leave the room before you make any comments or gestures that would let the machine know that this project is critical!!

    Mine needs a sign that says “I like to randomly change thread tension in the middle of a line of stitching.”
