Tuesday Tips–1/27/2015

I really do like the Internet!  From the comfort of my recliner, sitting here staying warm while it is snowing outside, I can learn new things.  Also, I can research and find out how to do things.

My sewing machine needed some cleaning and oiling, and my short-term memory wasn’t working!  I needed to find out how to oil it.  Well, enter my computer and the Internet!  Search term: Oiling Bernina Sewing Machine – Result: Both written instructions and Videos!


Today I’d like to share some links to a number of other interesting sites.

    This ability to find information about EVERYTHING is my favorite aspect of the internet, too. All I have to do is vaguely wonder something and I can know the answer!
