21  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Did I break my new Serger?!?!?! on: July 13, 2009 08:44:43 PM
PS...sorry I didn't come back when I figured out my problem.

What happened is one of my lower looper arms was loose. Had I just taken it in to be calibrated it would have been all good...but the diy idiot in me thought I could do it myself.

NOW I have a broken serger. I broke the lower needle, and it's such an off brand I don't think I'll be able to get a new one. It lives in the trunk of my car now.

Hello All.

So, it's official, after only having my serger for a week I managed to break it. Don't worry, that's kind of my style. Also, I bought it off craigslist for way too little so...you get what you pay for.

Anyway, I took it to a shop today and they told me that it would be so much to fix, or I could use it as a trade in and buy one of their viking machines for like 200 bucks less.

Well...I don't want a way expensive viking, although they were kind o sexy.

So I'm just wondering, have any of you heard about any other shop taking a trade in? I plan on calling a few places tomorrow but narrowing down the options wouldn't suck.

Thanks all!

I have a Yamata serger...it's pretty much a carbon copy of the Singer 14SH654. So I was sewing along on one of my very first projects, and some of the tail threads get caught in what was being sewn at the time. All of sudden I hear a machine "tink" sound and the machine stops. The threads were in a big knot. So I cut them all away and re thread the machine ...yes in the correct way per the instructions...and the machine runs but it wont make the loops...the threads just run straight and all not locked together.

I have re threaded my machine 3 times now I think. I have also changed the needles and even tried the other plate thing I have. Still nothing.

Nothing inside the machine looks broken or off, but for the life of me I can't get it to work.

What the hell did I do??? Does any one know anything about this. Google doesn't seem to...

28  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: One Crafter's Trash...swap??? on: November 19, 2008 01:28:49 PM
Well...the way I see it this swap would be almost like a "game" with rules and what have you. Maybe you don't have to use everything in the box BUT you only get X many "send back" items and your partner can define X many "must use" items.

I figure it would be a longer swap because that kind of mailing and creativity would take a while.

And I guess the size of the box would for sure depend on what a person was sending (a priority box full of beads, for example, is just silly. But full of fabric might not be enough).  So maybe in stead of a size there should be an item count requirement or at least a "more than" requirement.

And this would be more fun with more people to match up "junk" and tallents.

Yes yeeessss mwahahaha!

Well...if not here the first thing that popped into my head was the alchemy thing on etsy. I see you have an etsy so you know about it...but maybe if you are looking to like "outsource" so as to sell there that wouldnt be so Kosher...but who knows. I wouldnt mind doing the leg work even though I have an etsy shop...but thats broke me with lot's of time on her hands...
