    Intro and a question.

    Hey. I'm Sallie, 20, Living in Ohio and pretty new to sewing in general. I took a class in high school but that I can't say I remember much since it was so fast pasted and no practice afterwards. I enjoyed it very much and when my mother came up she very much wanted to teach me the ways of sewing since she's a professional. Even made my quilt which I love now that I'm an adult.

    Anyway while searching I can across a machine that someone no longer wanted. A singer 15-91. Very well maintained (from what my mother said). However the pressure foot won't go down. The lever to put it down will go down very stubburnly but the footer will still stay up.

    Welcome, from Texas!

    If no one answers your question soon, try posting it in the "For Vintage and Antique Machine Enthusiasts" section. Click the "Home" tab and it's the third link. Those folks know just about everything, about the older machines.

    Welcome from NJ.

    Neesie beat me to the punch advising you to go to the Vintage section of the board. Also, you could look online for a manual for that machine. I believe there are free versions for download. You may need to take off the face plate and re-connect something and probably do some oiling/cleaning as well. There are also some very good tutes in the vintage section here regarding cleaning/repairing that might answer you question. Depending on the price of the machine, it might not be to costly to have repaired professionally if you're not comfortable doing this yourself. Might want to get an estimate on that as well as general tune up and negotiate the price of the machine accordingly.

    Good luck.
