My very own fix it man! DH working on a Singer my daughter bought me at a yard sale for $5 earlier this summer. The other one I used to fill bobbins. I tried to set a machine up for Joey(DGS) this weekend and neither one would work! So DH has decided to see if he can figure out the problem. If it has a motor it fascinates him. He was a mechanic in the army and as a hobby til his health prevents him from working on cars. But he grew up as a jack of all trades and has a fair knowledge of a lot of things so even tho he can't concentrate very long at one time he likes to putter around with fixing things. He is working on them as I type this. Will let you know if he gets it fixed! LOL
I looked up and saw him sitting at the sewing machine and I asked him if he was going to learn to quilt! He just laughed! DH is disabled. He had a brain injury 30 yrs ago. He can't concentrate for long or he has black outs. but he loves to putter. He learned to sew in the Army. So he does know how to hand sew.
