    How to use an underbraider on a vintage sewing machine - video by Muv

    I'm so excited - Muv sent me a link to her newest video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zIG9...c7FAAAAAAAAAAA - grab a cup of tea and enjoy!!!

    I'm thinking there may be other types of underbraiders
    if you have an underbraider please post a pic
    Maybe you have it figured out and can put it on the machine
    If you haven't figured it out maybe someone else can tell how to attach it
    I don't think it matters if it is vintage or not...
    It would be good to see the toys!!!

    I really appreciate the good quality videos they do.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Thanks for the link, I have always wondered how those work and now it is so simple! Hope they do more on attachments.

    Thanks again

    Yes! I hope Muv does a WHOLE lot more videos on attachments!!!

    My mother's FW sewing machine has a straight foot and one of the really old buttonholer attachments which she never figured out so I never did either... I had not seen the buttonholer's manual in her stuff so I printed one out for her for Christmas. I have to admit, I've never learned to use attachments for much. It is amazing what can be done without attachments though. Attachments just make it easier and the more I learn to use them the more I like them. When my mom worked for J C Penny in the alterations department she did ALL the fittings for the Indy 500 princesses - someone else did the sewing. At home, she could alter things, make things, upholster things you name it she sewed it with her little FW - incredible things got sewn on there. I guess it goes to prove you don't need a fancy machine to do amazing things. She doesn't sew much any more. She is 85 and her hands don't do what she tells them any more. She tries some times and gets frustrated. For Christmas my sister and I overhauled the FW for her. She has a newer Singer but it is too frustrating for her. I also printed out a new copy of the FW owner's manual - she only had bits of the original. And it printed in large print so she loved it.

    Thank you so much for sharing this video...a couple of years ago I had one - gave to away to a lady that asked for it. Then I decided I just had to have one... paid 25.00 for another on ebay...could not figure out how to use it.. looks like it will make fun trim for an apron.. I wonder if mini rick rack would feed through?

    Happy New Year

    Sweet! I just looked through the various boxes and found one in my puzzle box...I think all along I was assuming it was something to hold the bits in the puzzle box because they are all in a jumble. I definitely hope she does more videos on using the attachments, I have a couple here that I have no idea what they do....I have used a ruffler with great success, tried to figure out some of the others but no joy...the manual makes it seem simpler than it is, having a video to watch is soooo much better!

    Great video - and great idea to use it to trim hems on children's chlothes.

    Hello Everyone!

    So glad you enjoyed the video. It was the same rigmarole as when I did the seam guide video - using a hand machine while standing up behind the camera tripod and with each arm coming round from either side of the camera.

    I'm not sure which attachment to do a video about next. I did the underbraider because no one else seemed to have posted a video showing underbraiding on Youtube yet.

    Judy, I have some very narrow rickrack and it feeds through a treat, and also I have some that is a tiny bit wider and it is too wide. So if it fits, try it! The advantage with rickrack is that it has a bias weave, so you can go round curves, whereas with straight weave ribbon you need to keep going in a straight line.

    Today we branched out and did a video on how to make marmalade. I don't know if you can get Seville oranges in the States - I understand you call them temple oranges. We can only get them here for a month or so - they are imported from southern Spain, are as bitter as lemons, and have a very short season. Let me know if you would be interested in more videos about making jam and marmalade... I'd love it if I knew I could inspire you to try new things in the kitchen. English cooking isn't that bad, despite what the French say!
