Yesterday I tried a new thread. I’m still sewing up a storm, prepping for Comic-Con. This thread was heavier. I could not machine sew more than a quarter inch before my machine jammed. I’m sewing a fabric covered in fur, complicating my expectations for how it should all work. I fought with it for 3 hours, with partial successes. I switched to another thread with easier going. A professor back in college said “learning is pain” which I hated at the time. Still do. Nonetheless, it’s true. There’s no learning without the endurance of discomfort and frustration and pain. Practice.
