1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Porn-ish Advertisements on: November 02, 2006 08:20:42 AM
i had this happen before too
only it was at a parenting webpage. at first i thought is was ad matching to what i was looking for "breat feeding" but instead i got lots of breasts in the side bar. anyway after a quick adware check and i still saw it i emailed the company about it. after that no more porn in the side bar.  It was way crazy.

oh i forgot
since it looks like you have an extenal motor and belt be carful putting things next to it: cat tails can be pulled easily on the belt. Sad
i use large rubber band for belts on mine because real belts dont seem to fitand they are a pain to replace since i have to take the motor loose then add change the belt and re tighten the motor but i cant keep the belt tension and then the belt gets too loose.  So i found rubber bands work well for replacements 2 at a time.
before you use it make sure you have the right power for it or have it rewiredor use a power strip. some older machines can suck power or have really old wiring that needs to be checked. aluminum wiring and cause fires, (moms old house burned down from a fire caused by her machine ((freaky i know))) grounding is important.

that looks aot like mine only its a montgumery ward
the buton on top sets the pressure on the foot against the fabric i use mine alot, helpful for bulky things like layers of denium and canvas and plush fabric for animals ot terry.
the left knobby is the stich tension
the right smaller knobbt/lever thingy is the stitch selector and needle position
 the bigger right knobbt is stich length and reverse, press and hold the center for reverse.
the knobby on the right at the very bottom is to switch the feed dogs on and off for darning/krewl work if you turn that you will have to feed the fabric yourself. i use this option for quilting instead of a walking foot or blind foot since they wont fit my machine.

i love the colors of your new machine, ive been thinking of painting mine for awhile.

make sure that you have the needle facing the right way (one of mine the groove is toward you  the other one of mine has the groove to the left) for you sewing machine to pick up the bottom thread. also make sure you have the bobbin loaded all the way onto its post (i forget this all the time) or your needle may hit the bobbin case wrong and not do anything.  also try holding the thread loosly and turn the wheel toward you not away .

i had a few pairs of hunter green hose that i bleach dyed. thye turned out really nice and held up for qutie a few wearing before i snagged them on my boot zipped. the bleaching goes fast but i waited til i got a nearly nude colorbefore i rinsed them out. i imagine that you could do that with heavier tights too but be careful you dont wait too long.
