    Euro-Pro 416 machines

    My wife runs a consignment shop out of our garage. She basically brings peoples junk home and sales it for them. Her customers are usually moving and often downsizing so it’s not always junk.
    If I were to bring the stuff home she would call it junk. She refers to her junk as inventory... lol

    So today she brought home some more there was a little sewing machine at first glance I thought it was a serger or an embroidery machine because of the thread storage compartment. It was a Euro-Pro 416 sewing machine. It’s a neat little machine I was just curious who has used one and any thoughts about it.

    Sorry Quiltnan I used all caps on the word inventory in the second paragraph more so to be sarcastic about what my wife calls inventory. Not to shout.

    I'm not familiar with that machine, however, I am familiar with the different perspectives of what is junk and what is inventory, lol....just ask my husband or me about stuff in the shop - one man's treasure is one wife's trash!!!
    A husband is the perfect confidant to tell your secrets to - he can't reveal them to anyone else because he wasn't really listening when you told him!

    My wife doesn’t sew but I attempt to sew from time to time. This is such a cool machine it folds up with a whole sewing kit built into the case has a magnet in the top of the arm to quickly store pins. Everything resembles singer products but with some cool styling

    This is not what I consider a vintage machine but this has been the best forum for any thing for sewing machines so much Knowledge and resources that is impossible to find.

    I’m guessing close to 15 yards of fabric or more. I failed on my first quilt. Maybe just a blanket made from this scraps.

    I have a Euro Pro Shark Intelli Sew. I have not used it for sometime but it was an awesome machine when I did. I made many things with it.

    I like the compartments! This is a basic machine for beginners and definitely not vintage. Do you have a manual? I have a PDF if you would like.

    Yes I have the papers with the machine. I have a singer Walmart machine that I use from time to time. I’m teatering on keeping this machine and letting the singer go.

    Keeping an emergency sewing machine as a back up is a must! We are all enablers here so no one will tell you not to keep both .

    I just finally got my industrial machine to make stitches I’m so ecstatic!!! I’m going to learn this machine and yes I will keep one home owner machine for back up. This industrial machine is what I dream about as a child watching and helping my mother make pants etc. I always thought I can make ultilty things bags etc. My first piece was a draw string bag for my dominoes. Basically stitched the bottom of scrap jeans and added the draw string at the top. All on a toy sewing machine. Did I mention I got the big machine to sew???

    Congratulations... That feeling is why most of us have many machines. The thrill of it!

    Yeah my first time getting a treadle machine to sew was amazing last winter. I’m not good at sewing but I’m still amazed by those that can do it well. Is 50 years old to old to ask for an apprenticeship at the local upholstery shop?

    I'd say no. Never too old. If one was closer to me, I would have also. Approach it as help for them, whatever the task early on, even sweeping the floors. Observe and while questions are good, don't slow them down or interfere with their jobs to get done. Try to learn the steps and order.
    If I were you I would first get familiar with sewing and sewing machines and get a good book on upholstery terms and tools. Check youtube videos.
    In other words, don't go in cold.
    Good luck. Let us know what happens. If I can help you on sewing, sewing machines, upholstery etc, you can PM me too. I have lots of Upholstery tools and books and 6 industrial machines.

    I already have a full time job as an aircraft mechanic but I’m certain some chores around an upholstery shop might lead to something to do in my retirement.
