Equally important is getting the bobbin set precisely. You must pull the bobbin thread completely into the tension device at the bobbin. I find that I can do this more easily if I hold the bobbin still with my left index finger as I pull the thread around to the tension device. On the drop-in bobbin models if all is quiet around you, you can hear the thread pop into its proper position. Not getting the thread there can make the bobbin thread show on top or create a wad on the back side of the fabric. If you are unsure where the tension device is on your machine come by the shop with your set-in bobbin case or if your bobbin drops into your Husqvarna Viking machine we can show you on our floor models where the device is.

The border stripe is superb. The uses for this group are unlimited. Our feature this week is the Free Pattern folder that we can hand to you when you purchase Splendor II fabrics. The quantity is limited, so come in early to get your fabric and the pattern.
Labor Day Holiday
Just a reminder that Heirlooms & Comforts will be closed in observance of Labor Day on Monday September 3, 2012. Be sure to stop in by September 1 to collect up the supplies you will need for sewing on Labor Day. We will open again on Tuesday, September 4 at regular time
During Football Season at Clemson University we at Heirlooms & Comforts indulge ourselves in this sport. Sometimes our customers have difficulty dealing with traffic as the number of cars and people in the area swells to near 80,000. So, in order to get to the game on time and to enjoy our friends and families who participate in this spectator sport, we will adjust our opening/closing times according to game time. We don't know all game times now because TV coverage dictates game times and they choose those late in the process.
- September 8: will not open because of a 12:30 game.
- September 15: will close at 1:30 for a 3PM game
