    What is the difference between a thread injector and a sewing machine?

    I was looking at a post asking people for pics of their thread injectors, and it seems that there are some very serious machine nuts on here. Looked like 48 posts when I last checked. Anyway, I get it that it is desirable to be able to sew through some heavy materials or layers, but are all thread injectors sewing machines, but some sewing machines not thread injectors? My girlfriend generally won't let me touch her sewing machines, and rarely will sew anything for me unless I beg...people really are nuts about their machines... I was looking online for info about thread injectors but mainly just came up with results for sewing machines.

    There the same end of story. You have two options as I see it (1) buy your own machine as I did or (2) learn the power of the chocolate covered strawberries with champagne for the really involved sewing project. You could get her out for a night with the girls and sneak in and use hers behind her back, but you will need the strawberries, chocolate and some really nice flowers if your caught. So number (1) is best option IMHO.

    I use a Bench Top Thread Injector, not a sewing machine.

    I hand thread inject. How cheekie is that? Don't have a machine and what little sewing I do is all by hand. (I can see this posting being misconstrued and deleted) I would say, get your own machine as yu might start a war at home of using hers.

    What is the difference between a thread injector and a sewing machine?

    It's funny I went to my church last night where there is a quilting group that meets every Thursday night. I needed the room because I am making a winter tarp for my wife. So I go in there with the tread injector, a 25' carpenters tape measurer, a sheet rock t- square. I mean talk about clampets coming to town setup. They were giving me a hard time (all in jest) about sewing. And that is where I came out with men don't sew, we thread inject. That got all of them laughing.

    You should have waited 3 days ...

    before asking that question. You might have received some very creative April Fool's day answers!

    By the way, "PTI" is the recognized abbreviation for one. If you don't believe me, look it up.
