This will be a first ever experiment for our local library. they want to have one evening a month where folks with some knowledge can show others how to fix stuff. I got invited by a friend who works there..I

Best of luck teaching the finer points of maintaining a vintage machine. Report back to let us know if anyone shows up for your demo. Here's to it being a great success.

Good luck! I hope it encourages someone to bring out an old machine to get it up and running again.

Bags, when I was at Winer Harbor, I barely knew which was the pointy end of the machine.

Okay, I still would like to be able to sit in on your demo tonight! I know it takes time, but patience is not one of my virtues. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I have any. And now with this new addiction. I have all you to blame. haha Again, have fun!

I didn't see this earlier. Hope it goes well. Might get some more competition for some of the sewing machines.
