Isn't that cool? It was posted on one of my sewing machine collector's groups to show how timing works on a sewing machine :-).

Very good image of how the thread gets hooked in and used. Thanks, I'm forwarding your blog to a student of mine.

I just don't get how that one yellow thread gets from behind the green thread to the front of the green thread. I know it does - my stitches are obviously looped, but it's a mystery to me! Thanks for the clip, though!
