Help identifying sewing machine please? by Trish Brown
Yesterday, I came by a poor old Singer sewing machine that had been dumped out in the rain! It's a more recent model than the one I own and I thought to have it refurbished if it's not going to be too expensive.

searching for vera like fabric by im sew clever
I'm am on the hunt for prequilted fabric in hip colors. No torrid paisleys or mauve flowers but hot pinks and lime greens, reversible is okay but not necessary. My daughter wants a vera duffle and luggage ensemble and this mom isn't paying that price for such a simple thing to sew. thanks

Overlocker - thread breaks by Vilna
Hi everyone! I bought an overlocker Elna 744 recently. It does all the stitches beautifully but not the cover hem. If I'm lucky the left needle skips stiches but normally the thread breaks. It's only the top left needle that seems to have problems. I've tried everything the manual suggests and I...
