I was sooo happy to get my husband's grandmother Singer 237. Grin  It took me 3 hours to fix the thing.  I had to take a hammer to it to get the presser foot to come down.  I made an adoreable baby gown with it.  My problem is I have a manual, but it really doesn't show me how to thread it around the tension disc Huh  If there is a trick to it, I figured it out then re-threaded the machine only to lose it.  Just spent 2 hours re-threading to no avail.  Your help in describing how you thread it would be greatly appreciated. Cheesy

Finally figured it out! Grin  Used the manual for a 301 singer instead.  It had better pics & was way more descriptive.  Thanks Sew-Classic you rule!!! Cool
