    Hello and welcome from Ontario. There are lots of members here that should be able to help, but I am not one of them.

    Monica, if your machine is an older machine (feather weight, 301, 99 from Singer) Billy (Lostn51) has a given us a free tutorial in his 'Vintage' area. Go to "home" at the top of the page and at the very bottom you should find the 'Vintage' area. Also, he is usually the 'go to' guy for machines.... Good luck and Welcome!

    Really new at this I guess, i went to the top and clicked on HOME and it took me to another screen. I went to the bottom of the page but could not find a Vintage area. Did I look in the wrong place? Hate to be a bother just really want to know if my machine is still ok to use. Thanks for your help.
