41  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to (not) make a model in duct tape for custom fitting... on: October 28, 2006 10:40:14 AM
i think the ducktape form might be able to withstand the washer. in Middle school we had to make a water proof "house" and i used ducktape and a cardboard box, well it was out doors in my back yard for 4 years befor it fell apart. and that was threw snow, rain, and sun. so i should think i few washings in the washing machine shouldnt kill it. i used the duck brand duck tape for that. good luck!

yah the pice i glued together just pulled a part. i think you should just go ask the girl down the hall to borrow her sewing machine. it will help it hold up the best in the long run
46  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! on: October 22, 2006 11:53:40 AM

47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: question about tulle on: October 22, 2006 10:49:25 AM
i went threw the same problem, though my answer was to go out and buy a sewing machine *yay for salvation army* but i think you could use rubber cement. i just tryed glueing a scrap peice of tulle together and it stuck, so that very well might work
good luck
48  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Melting glass? on: October 22, 2006 07:58:09 AM
i think you can use sand. i have not yet melted or fused glass *im just a humble glass blower* but im pretty sure they use sand to for fusing and melting at my college. so you could give that a try. the idea of just melting it on the kiln shelf might ruin it, the glass will melt to the shelf and you might not be able to remove it. but im not tottaly sure so research that idea a bit more.
Best of luck
49  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: questions regarding a Brother Charger 651 on: October 21, 2006 03:06:19 PM
thank you so much every one who responded! one of the things i love best about crafter is how fast you get a responce, i have figured out how to reverse, by pushing in the brown button. we also have got it working and i am starting on making my halloween costume. hehehe it should be intresting to see how it goes. thank you all again so much for your help. i will bring it to a repair person once i am on brake from college, but my college is in the middle of no where, and i have looked for a repair place, but there are none close by. as for the power i am only keeping it plugged in when i am using it. being wicked paranoid to begin with i hardly ever keep anything plugged in when im not using it so that should reduce any hazards that might come up.
thanks again
50  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / questions regarding a Brother Charger 651 on: October 21, 2006 06:00:20 AM
so i picked up this beautiful old sewing machine at salvation army yesterday. and i was wondering if any one knows anything about it because it didn't come with directions. I an not a great seamstress, i mainly have been using my moms "old" but not this old machine, so i have a lot of questions as to the functions of it. Ive been searching on line and found how to thread it, but thats about it. it works pretty well, the Balance wheel doesn't turn very well I'm guessing it needs oil? my significant other said he would try and figure that part out later on today. Here is a picture of her

Here are my questions This little knob pops up, is it the reverse button? it not what is it?

does this knob change the tension? or size of stitches?

Next many levers and knobs, the top one on the left seems to change where the needle is? maybe its not supposed to do that?

if any one has any other usefull things i should know definitely tell me
Thank you all so much in advanced
