  3. Thread Problems on Vintage Machines

    by , 02-25-2016 at 04:50 PM
    I have recently acquired a Singer 201K23 to compliment my 401a and 1905 Model 28. All three machines sew like champs, but I do have a few little issues with the 201 & 401.


    1) On the new 201 and occasionally the 401a, when I finish a seam, raise the presser foot, and pull the fabric away, the top thread, bottom thread, AND an extra loop of top thread come along with the fabric.

Didn't spend much time with the venders as I didn't have the $$$ to spend. Registered for the grand prize of an Alaskan quilting cruise in 2017 and to win a Janome machine. Fingers crossed. Show continues thru Saturday. I did see a friend that I play MahJongg with and two ladies from our small guild. Overall....glad I went.

  8. Hi new here

    by , 02-20-2016 at 10:37 PM
    Hello I have a question that I've been searching for, for a long time.

    I have a White Model 575 Sewing Machine its blue I was told that its a 1941. The machine is blue in color has one stitch nothing extra and is a heavy duty machine. Its beautiful unique and from what I gather rare.

    My question is if anyone might know any history on this special little machine how many made, etc. I know that it was made by White and made in Japan.

    Thank you for your help. ...

  9. Making My First Quilt

    by , 02-18-2016 at 05:19 PM
    Hello everyone! I'm new to quilting and wanted to share my very first project with you. I spend one week with Judy Niemeyer learning how to quilt.

    Let me know what you think and what a good project would be for my second quilt!


    I'd love to hear your experiences with template paper piecing. Like I said, I've done it only this one time and there were so many rules and techniques I tried to memorize. Let me know if you have any tips to share! Thanks and I'm excited ...

    1. A graph paper pattern to use for placement
    2. Sew a 2.5” scrap square and 2.5” white square together
    3. Sew a 2.5” x 4.5” white strip “log” to #2
    4. Sew a 2.5”
