1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Very scared of my sewing machine. on: July 31, 2013 03:44:09 PM
I bought this machine


I am scared I need to return it now because it might be to small for the projects I want to do.
Like teddybears and monster bears and dresses
Do i need to return it or will this work?

If money is a concern do you have a local sewing machine store/ repair shop? I know my local store sells refurbished machines for under $100. These machines are older and much better then what you could buy at Walmart for the same cost.

Maybe your machine is channeling Tim Gunn, who says tight and shiny is the quickest way to look cheap!

Sergers can't do buttonholes, top-stitching, attach bias binding, use a ruffler, blind hemming, rolled hems, quilting...

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Vintage Singer Futura 900 Value Question on: June 23, 2012 06:49:33 PM
The value is what someone will pay for it. Example- I've seen quality machines for $5 & POS plastic wonders for $100+.
Plus the part of the country can affect the values- some areas are overrun with machines & have lower prices.

I personally would use the Kenmore before the Singer. Ive just heard iffy things about the "touch & sew" line of singers.

Head over to yahoo groups & join wefixit. A lot of information in the archives.

It is not inexpensive but people have raved about Ray White's machine repair seminars.
Also join the wefixit group over at yahoo groups.

Use Dawn dishsoap for DIY ice packs (no idea if it works, it popped up on my Pinterest feed)

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please Help Identify this machine on: December 13, 2011 06:55:55 AM
It is earlier than 1970s, I would date it to the 1950s. It looks to be a made in Japan badged machine. It is not an industrial machine- but would be able to handle heavier fabrics then the $99 singer sold at Walmart.
