4.5 Million Stitches

Here’s a little known fact contributed by our friend and teacher Beret Nelson.  She had her kids do the math and it turns out that a little over 4.5 million stitches (amount on her machine last checkup) equals about 6.5 miles at the default stitch length.  That amounts to 13 miles of thread when you count the bobbin, which is 91.5 spools of thread (250 yard spools).  Good Grief!
