So I realized over the weekend that there’s this soul-crushing presence that nobody ever talks about. And no, I’m not referring to the grown-up realization that Full House is incredibly corny or the cat barf that you find lurking in a dark corner like four months after it was, um, deposited.
I’m referring to sewing machine guides. Specifically the diagrams in sewing machine guides. Specifically the diagrams in sewing machine guides that are supposed to GUIDE you. And ideally not off of a cliff.
Because let’s face it: this is the worst diagram ever and it probably wants to eat my soul for breakfast.
According to this diagram and its sorry use of arrows, you should use a decapitated finger to assemble the thread as such:
Did I mention that I have had zits larger than the actual size of that diagram? What you see featured here is the I-zoomed-in-with-my-camera version. Real estate in Quick Start guides is apparently slim.
Seriously, all I wanted to do was wind the bobbin.
Somebody get me some chocolate.
Has a diagram ever crushed your soul? Sharing is healthy. Unless it’s zit measurements. Usually that’s a bad idea. Now you tell me.
