happily happily married to the love of my life for 25 years this year - but we BOTH end up forgetting our anniversary most years. And we are OK with that.

I would start by taking off the top and lifting it out of the bottom casing as well. Take pictures as you go to remember where screws go - and have a bowl to put the screws in. There shouldn't be more than one or two big screws on the top.

Get to as much of the inner workings as you possibly can and get out any lint and dust you see. Sometimes a bit of kerosene on a q-tip is needed anywhere old grease has guilt up and is keeping things from moving smoothly when you turn the wheel by hand. (I just bought my youngest daughter a machine just like this one - and there was one place where I had to do this. The machine in the video now lives with my oldest. She is the one to thank for requesting the videos.)

Then get out some new (not vintage) sewing machine oil and just put a drop or two anywhere you see parts moving against each other. Keep turning the wheel slowly by hand until you think you've gotten all the parts then carefully put everything back together.

I usually get out a scrap to sew on and a paper towel to mop up in case I got carried away with the oil on the needle shaft. Give it a whir and see how things are going.

This is an excellent machine IF you keep it lint free and put the bobbin in right. DON'T use the cheap thread - it is made of short leftover fibers that shred themselves like crazy into your machine. The extra cost for good thread will save you a world of frustration with this machine (and all others as well.)

Oh - and needles dull too! Change your needle with each new project or whenever you hear that "pok, pok, pok" sound.

Enjoy!

So much wonderful success. You can STOP worrying about whether you fit in with anyone group or not. You fit beautifully into the ART world.

A friend of my mom's made her a key chain - a huge block of wood with her name on it and a three foot length of industrial chain. It would sit on the floor of the car while she drove. She actually used it for quite a while. Never lost those!

There was a manufacturing delay - the DVD's should be in the warehouse by next monday and I'm shipping them out by next wednesday.  All pre-orders will include a little surprise as a thank you gift for being so patient!

The kit in this video is only available until February 6, 2015. Don't worry - there are plenty of other screens available at http://lyrickinard.com/ready-made-thermofax-screens/

Oh be still my beating heart. This is gorgeous! Where do you find access to a laser cutter? Does the technology have a steep learning curve?

And I'd say the the learning curve is with learning how to use the software not the hardware. So juts for 2-d cutting you'd just have to know how to use Illustrator.

Love this practice for the simple fact that I have never waited longer than five minutes in the waiting room. They are very efficient, can get all of my children in at the same time and with their early hours we are home before the school bus arrives. The office staff is incredibly friendly as are all of the techs and Dr. Garcia himself. I seriously wish I could find a regular doctor's office that was even half this good.
