Oh- if only it were that simple! It's some kind of cam or drive shaft- i took it as far apart as I felt comfortable,
I'm going to take it up to sears to have it looked at, but also search around for a good deal on new one just in case it costs way too much to have it repaired/serviced.
Thanks though!
22  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Kenmore machine-can't even turn the wheel: not worth the repair costs? on: November 02, 2008 07:20:07 PM
I have a lovely Kenmore, almost 10 years old, model 385. Today, I though maybe it was making a slightly different noise but couldn't really hear a difference and thought maybe i was imagining it. Not long after, it stopped mid-stitch. I got it going again but only a about an inch longer and then nothing.  I couldn't even manually move the needle with the wheel.  I took the cover off to look at what wasn't moving, realized that I'm not a sewing machine mechanic and called sears. Unfortunately, the dept. i need to speak with isn't open on sunday.  Then I thought I would look online, to see if I could get either info on how I could fix it myself of more info on how big of a repair it could be. Since the only information I found advised things like cleaning the bobbin casing and what have you- I'm starting to think that maybe I could buy a new machine for what the repair will cost.
Does anyone have an advice? Or maybe links to better diy repair sites than what I found?

I remember doing this 5th grade- although with much simpler designs.  I love the beards as much as everyone else; I have a thing for facial hair and lately I see it on everything.

I wonder- if you were trying to do this on fabric w/ acrylic paint, you'd be mixing in textile medium right? so I know it kind of things out the paint.  I think it would be worth experimenting. I've done something similar, but with  cut up corks and apples....

That tears it. I found some awesome polka dotted cord and immediately thought of vegbee's coat, but though it might be too thick. I"m gonna get it for sure now.
Your's is great, both my DD and DS would flip for the Thomas lining.

Am I the only one who uses those colored sheets and tracing wheel? is that old fashioned? That's how my mom did it and although it is time consuming, and the wheel eventaully cuts the pattern, it really helps in transfering all the pattern markings.

yum. sounds really tasty. you could make it even more healthy by grinding up some veg. in the food processor and adding them to the mix. I favor carrots, zucchini and red bell peppers; but you have to drain the excess liquid grinding them up creates or else your meatloaf falls apart.

awesome!The bonsai tree is by far my favorite and I can't wait to see your new bathroom- it sounds exaclty like something I would do if I didn't have to deal with my husband having an opinion.

Beautiful! I love the closure! do you know what that fabric is called or the designer's name? I'd love to get some.  And if you made your own pattern, I'd so buy it.
Your baby is too adorable! love that little belly!
