I have thread wrapped around my take up lever!
Maroon thread, something that I haven't used for a year
and now the poor baby won't sew.
It will be two weeks until I get it back.
What do I do about my block of the month?!
We purchased this years ago for $500
including the sewing table
and the embroidery attachments.
You can program your own designs but it's
old school, not the fancy new stuff.
It also has pre-programmed settings.
Someone traded it in and the dealer didn't carry Pfaffs.
They just wanted it out of the showroom
and we arrived at the right time.
I went up to the attic and retrieved my mom's old machine.
Except mom says it wasn't hers ?????
It may be one of my grandmothers, but it looks a lot like Mom's.
It's a Singer 413 zig zag, pretty old but not sure what year.
It might be from the 70s?
I found the manual on line and downloaded it.
I was a little fuzzy on how to thread it.
Now I'm not complaining. . .
Really? Who do I think I'm kidding-
I'm complaining, although I should not be,
this is a blessing.
But apparently I've been sewing on a Cadillac.
This is just not the same.
I'm sure it's a matter of getting used to it.
But for my more complicated BOM, I think I'll wait the two weeks.
The Amish quilt uses thicker matial so it may work better.
I am trying to get tensions set and stitch length right.
The knob, which is also reverse, was stuck
but I have it moving now, which helps.
I will say bobbin threading and insertion is easier on the Singer!
Another plus, my husband dropped my Pfaff off for me
and spent some time with the repairman.
He showed him how I need to set the machine
to free motion quilt!
Now I just have wait the two weeks.
