Does anyone else here enjoy sewing with White or Domestic sewing machines? It seems like they aren't very popular at all but I just love the ones that I own.
I have this very machine in excellent condition with all accessories etc from my MIL. My husband sewed a tent on it from a kit or pattern, and I pieced my first quilt! I need a new belt tho. Do you know where I could find one?

Can you take your old belt to a sewing machine shop or measure the inside diameter.? Even for a White this is an usual machine.

I have a White Jeans Machine that is a real workhorse. I got it around 1995. Service it occasionally and it's never had any problems. My daughter backed the car over it, and except for a few scratches it was fine.
