I was hoping that as a sewist I would be able to escape such terrible fate… but knew it would catch up to me some day. Today, Friday the 13th it did. An industrial Singer straightstitch complete with OSHA required finger guard managed to stab right through my nail and out the pad of my finger.
OOOOOOOOUUUUCHHHHH. I always heard the stories of you my fellow sewing enthusiasts and have always felt lucky that I had yet to sew through my own finger. I like to think that I am fully initiated into this awesome sewing club now. But still ow, ow, owwww.
Anywho, I would love some tips on speeding the healing.
