    Basic Sewing Machine Repair



    I ran across this site while browsing for something else so thought I'd share the link. Looks like some really helpful information, especially for those with older mechanical machines.

    There is also a link near the top to download manuals.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    How wonderful. Yesterday, I taught an adult basic sewing skills, but this will be great for her and me!

    Thank you so much for this link. I have a featherweight which is not sewing well and was reluctant to try anything but feel confident to give it a go now.

    Thank you for this great link. I was wondering about how to adjust the timing on my mechanical machines if it becomes necessary.

    It won't print.
