"AAat's right, gave it a little mouth-to-mouth, and it came right around." snaps suspenders as she relates the tale My first Singer Futura, which was new in 1976, and which, I thought, finally died from over-use; I had reluctantly shelved it about 10 years ago, secretly hoping that if it rested...

Help with Sewing DejaNews by Ward
Hello, A long, long, time ago I read a post here that gave the measurements for various size dolls. Not the height, but the chest, mid-section, arm and legs. It was specific for sewing doll clothes. Seems not all dolls are created equally in circumference. I printed out the post, then lost it....

making teddy bear ears round by Irrational Number
I have a very simple teddy bear pattern, but the ears keep coming out rectangular. How do I sew it so that the ears turn around round? Hmm.. I hope that made sense. The bear is about 10 inches tall, so the ears are pretty small. There's no fur or anything, just cotton fabric. I'm hand- sewing...

Singer Touch-Tronic 2010 by [email protected]
Found it this afternoon at a thrift shop, under $30.00. It's in need of a thorough cleaning, but makes a beautiful stitch, sounds good, and it's a touch-panel machine!! 29+ built-in stitches, and so easy to use. I think this one might be the machine I give to GDD. Except it has an extra-long,...

nippers - which? by Robert
Many posters here have said that they find nippers (or thread clippers?) indispensible when sewing. I am trying to find a pair. I want them to be small, light, plastic-handled and of good quality. Is the one-finger "ear" a useful thing? (without ever having used one I think it adds little...
