“HELP!!! My sewing machine is NOT working! I think I’ll just throw it out the window!!!”

Do you own a sewing machine? can you relate to this?

If you can relate to this, then you need to read this book I just received in the mail. Sewing Machine Repair for the Home Sewer is a step by step detailed guide written for the common machine owner who gets plain old frustrated when the machine doesn’t work right. I am definitely not an accomplished seamstress, but I do love to quilt. So when I go to piece my quilt together and I get jagged, uneven seams, I get very easily frustrated.

Last Fall I was working on some quilt pieces and just about in tears. My friend Kayelynn came over and spent about an hour adjusting the tension, oiling the parts, clearing out dust, turning knobs and making my machine work like it’s supposed to.

Now thanks to this 56 page book, I am armed with some knowledge that should help me out the next time I’m in a fix!

About the book:

Written in step by step instructional style, it takes the machine owner through problem/solution scenarios allowing them to fix problems that can cause a lot of frustration for those who sew. Whether you have an older model machine, or one of the new computer models, this book will help keep your general repair costs to a minimum. The home sewer can now just look up the problem in this handy guide book and follow the instructions on how to fix it. YES, it’s now as easy to fix your sewing machine as picking up a book!

You can read several pages of the book here.

    “Complete Guide to Treadle Sewing Machines”
    This would be handy! I have my gramma’s machine & I don’t even know how to thread it. I have found video’s but the machine is at the other end of the house.

    I think it’s odd that I never found this site when I was trying to figure out how to fix my machine. That makes me think the interesting thing about the site is that it’s still in business! I’ll definitely have to bookmark them!

  • Would love to have this book. I too have to call someone for help when mine isn’t working right!

  • I think its interesting that they say 75% of all repairs could be done my the machine owner if they knew what to look for! i always try to fix my own machines so this book sounds great!!

    I would absolutely love to win this book. I have restored vintage machines, mostly minor adjustments with cleaning and lubing. I would love to learn more.
