    Yes, thanks Karen:
    I just got thru going thru the manual and that's exactly what's wrong. Now I need to figure out how to fix it. Do I take out the two small screws where the "finger" is unter the throat plate or do I take off the two screws holding the throat plate down on the base? I will get it figured out. I'm on the verge of having it sew like a dream.

    Just take off the shiny metal throat plate (two pretty big screws by the needle) and then you can rotate the bobbin shuttle or whatever it's properly called. Put the throat plate back on and VOILA!!!!

    Sorry I don't know the "lingo". LOL

    There's quite a bit of information here:

    Some pictures of back clampers here:

    I'm sure there are better links out there, but these are some quick ones to get you started.

    Thank you so much for your response. That is a tremendous help. Thank you.

    Woo Hoo!!! I just made all the adjustments and she sews like a dream. Much better than the other centennial I have. I couldn't be more excited. And I sure couldn't beat the price.

    I was about to say the same thing, and I think it's relatively easy to get replacement foot pedals

    I think so too. I'm going to go to eBay and see what I can find. Basically, I will need everything except the machine itself. I also have to figure out how to repair the case and get the insert for it. But in the meantime, she sews like a dream. I couldn't be happier.

    Sew happy for you!!!

    I LOVE (using the LOVE word here) my Little Ms. Featherweight. She even sewed through 3 layers of (soft) leather the other night for a guy who needed a patch sewn on his motorcycle vest.

    LOL! I've got some leather and I thought of giving it a try, but I will put it off for now, anyway. She's turning out to be quite the gem. Not sure I can part with her. I will have to come up with another option.
