First topic message reminder :

We are currently looking for someone to repair our Singer Sewing machine, but have not had any luck finding somewhere in BG. We have looked on Google and it is totally confusing. Can anyone help?

Hi Chris, don't panic Captain Wainwering, everything is under control, at least I hope so. The bobbin shuttle from Ebay is hurtling towards me as I speak and the other item is being sought out on the Internet when my dongle decides it's going to do something!!

We will meet when our bits get here, I will email you and we will organise a get togther. We enjoyed our time with you and Colin and we will enjoy our next meeting.

In the meantime, the paintbrush is calling from it's place in the jar of water and it is time to venture around the house and do a bit of varnishing on the door frames, not a moment is lost while the weather allows me to get on with renovating this house of ours!

Well done Guys g thanks for the update Don't you just H it when a plan comes together c

now talking of sewing machines I may have a donor who may donate some of these treadle sewing machines - My father was a tailor and used one of these all his life, he could not get along with the electric ones. If we do obtain these machines they would go to the Glavinica Teenage disability centre however, the man refurbish these machines to new condition so I know they will be fantastic, but was just thinking would these machines need a lot of maintenance and are they very difficult to maintain and get parts for. Fathers one very rarely broke. g

that would be my husband colins job sorted then.
he loves working on sewing machines he was trained at the London college of fashion so he will do that
these treadles go on for ever wonderful machines Perhaps we could set up a sewing traing session for the teenagers.
we would be happy to do that once a month set them a project and help them
now that's a plan s

Colin says find out the make of the machines he can then search for parts as the belts and needles are the important parts with these machines
They usually go for years and years but the belts need to be tightened regularly and the machines cleaned of fluff build up
If they are an oil bath machine they proberbly need about a pint of mineral oil for each machine.
If who ever offers the machines to you has a box of spares then take them and if they have the mineral oil then take that too as it can be expensive.
Colin says if they are usable then he will write a manual for them so that other people can maintain them too. s

Chris these are the sort of machines Duncan buys and repairs and sends to Africa He said

Dear Berni, At the moment I have stopped buying machines and doing them up. However if I get hold of any free machines you can have them. If you get donated any I will do them up for you in batches of 5. Some tips, go for Singer machines as you can still get parts of the Internet. Not the plastic ones, they drop to bits. The old black ones that will last for ever. You can get the machines for as little a 99p if your lucky. Will send you a couple of You Tube vid's to show what can be done. Hope this of some help. kind regards Duncan (York)

I thought Colin could have a trip down memory lane
