    Default 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.

    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.

    Default 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.
