Needed: help with sewing machine tension and foot alignment

I have a Pfaff 138 industrial sewing machine eating thread and needles. In my amateur troubleshooting I think it may be a tension and foot alignment issue. Is there an Islander with experience that would be willing to help me fix the situation so I can continue my sailboat dodger project?

Soup's On ~ Volunteers Needed


To make it another successful season we need more help and involvement from the community. Some of our cooks and team members have fallen by the wayside or have moved away from Thetis Island. If you are interested in volunteering please plan to attend our start up meeting on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th, 9.30 am in Forbes Hall.

Please be sure that your calendars are marked for this event as this is an important time to get new information, select your preferred dates and team members. This meeting will be followed by a kitchen protocol meeting for any newcomers or those who would like to refresh their memories.

We need cooks, team leaders and kitchen helpers. For every "Soup's On" event we must have a person in the kitchen who holds Food Safe 1 (or above) Certification to be responsible for making sure that all Food Safe protocols are followed.. This does not necessarily have to be the cook although it is preferable. 

Please read the following information re FOOD SAFE.

Food Safe Certification that was acquired prior to July 29th 2013 expired on July 29th 2018. To re-certify it will be necessary for you to do a refresher course. Refresher courses and for those wishing to take Food Safe for the first time you can access them online by going to:

If you have questions or need more information feel free to call or e-mail  Don (  or 250-246-4291), Dee (, or Shirley ( or 250-246-1816)

Family Fun Day ~ Thank You!

     A big thank you to all who came out to support our annual Family Fun Day on Saturday!  

The rain drops began just as the event started but that didn’t stop many of you brave islanders who showed up for the games.  With some prayers answered, the sun came out in time for more brave souls to get wet under the dunk bucket.  Thanks to many generous donors, we had a bounty of 44 prizes for the balloon raffle which sold out in less than 15 minutes!  Special thanks go to our pie team, Tatiana Nemchin, Mike Latte and our fantastic MC and auctioneer Joel Delaquis!  We couldn’t have done it without all you talented pie makers and generous bidders who helped make our live pie auction such a great success, raising nearly $1900!  

My sincere thanks to all the volunteers who organized the activities and to those who helped on the day: Tim French, Lynn Hunter, Theresa Elsie, Chad Kerr, Ken Redman, Matt Hess, Don Sinclair, Cat Fielding, Kat Urton, Celine Valestrand, Tatiana Nemchin, Ellen Rush, Natasha Gousseva, Anne-Marie Koeppen, Jo Williams, Geoff Seiler, Rebecca Andison, Hortenza Nawatzki Jenny Aronson, Carolyn Askew, and Alisha Rennie.  Also, many thanks to Capernwray for their very generous contribution of $500 to cover the food expenses for the event!

      Thank you to all who attended and donated to this years Family Fun Day and made it such a success, raising $3,750.55.  All proceeds will be split between TICA & TICF. What an amazing community we live in!

Thank you for your support!
