    Post Hello from the Netherlands

    Hey everyone,

    I 'm Tisch, mom of 2 great kids and i have a great Hubby. I'm really new to quilting, i have been looking into quilting the last couple of weeks but i signed up to this page because i bought a Singer 431 G. She was not in the great state that the seller told me she was , so i need to find a way to clean her and get her sewing again. If i can get her fixt i hope i can learn how to quilt with her!!

    Welcome! Best of luck with your Singer. There is a Forum on this site about fixing older machines. I'm not sure what kind of machine you have. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

    Welcome from Louisiana. One great thing about this board is some one will usually be able to help answer questions, help deal with problems and in general just be great people and resources. Look in the vintage machine area; there are post on how to clean and oil many different machines. Good luck.

    Welcome from SC Texas. That is such a workhorse of a machine I am sure with a little clean up and a little work you will have a winner.
