Re: [BKARTS] Mulling it over


The purpose of language is to communicate thoughts, etc. Yet you insist on
using the term "threading" for machine sewing. From what little I know of the
English language, I don't know of any case where sewing is called "threading."
Threading is what we do to put thread in place in preparation for sewing; such
as threading a needle or threading a sewing machine. You asked for help from
the group, then insist on confusing the issue by using inappropriate words.
