    HOW TO CLEAN UP and use a vintage sewing machine - videos by Muv and Fav

    These have gotten lost in the shuffle of the new QB format so I am posting them right here.
    Fav & Muv have made fantastic videos about old sewing machines. You most likely will so not have a sewing machine exactly like the machines in the videos, however, the cleaning principles will apply to just about any vintage sewing machine without a lot of dis-assembly. Be sure to pour yourself a nice cup of tea to enjoy while you watch these videos.

    Muv's Vista sewing machine from the video can also be seen on the Vintage Sewing machine photo pages! She is one of our own QB members!!!

    Why of course Miriam. MUV did the hard work. Thank you MUV. I was watching your videos instead of basting a quilt. But I love learning something new every day.

    vintage sewing machine videos

    Thank you for your videos on using the Singer 301 sewing machine.
    I would love to see a video doing free motion quilting on a full sized quilt using the Singer 301.
    I've watched many other videos on YouTube for free motion quilting, since I have my mom's Singer 301, would love to see someone that used their 301 to do free motion quilting and see how they do it.
    Thanks.
