 Huh
So my boyfriends mother has so kindly donated a sewing machine that her daughter wasn't using anymore to my re-learn to sew cause. I haven't sewn anything since gr. 8 home ec. class and that was 7 years ago!

I was given a Mason sewing machine, I can't find a model number on it, and honestly dont' think I could even remember how to thread it!

This is basically a plea for help! If anyone has the time or perhaps an instructions manual to help me, that would be great!

Thanks!

well, most machines thread basically the same way. do you know how old the machine is? can you take a picture and either post it or link to it? with pictures of the top and "front" (i.e. the side with the wheels and whatnot, i'm not sure what to call it), either myself or someone else should be able to draw you up a threading diagram and give you some basic instructions!

search the yahoo groups for sewing machines.  There are some brand-specific groups, but some are more generic like http://groups.yahoo.com/group/VintageSewingMachines/ (searching for sewing gets over 1000 groups).
