Started a Blue Santa this morning - the first one the thread was playing up again. It chewed up my WSS in the second one and the needle kept coming loose. So I tightened it replaced needles, etc etc. I got really peeved and told Trev I’m taking it back to Thorpes my sewing shop. I left it with Maarten and said the 75/11 needle wouldn’t stay in place and he said it may be too small for the shank to keep it in place. That’s a new

one to me!!!! Anyway I came home and got out the Brother and sewed it out no trouble. Here he is. I love Blue, so he’ll fit right in. Love Chris

Wow Beautiful Santa and Mrs. Looked but could not find where you got the designs, could you please tell us. Thanks Oh, how many stitches for each- just curious.

Hi Linda, I mentioned the name of the company in my previous picture of 'Merry' Christmas. It's all made in FSL and is about 5 inches tall. There are approximately 37304 stitches in 'Merry' Christmas and in Santa there are 46177 stitches (these were made in the 5x7 hoop) Love Chris

This must be his 'after christmas run' suit to relax in-lol- Red, for the energy to make the Christmas eve deliveries and blue, is soothing to relax him when it's all over.-lol-Either way, he's very handsome.

Your blue Santa is beautiful! I have had that problem with my serger but never with my Vikings, I use Inspira needles and keep a supply of them on hand. I hope your machine gets fixed quickly.
