Finally! A DIY Sewing Machine Repair Manual!
|April 14, 2012||Filed under Reviews|
The cover of this book instantly grabbed my attention. This poor, disgruntled woman looks like she’s ready to cry. I’m no expert sewer by any means, but trying to practice on a sewing machine that’s in disrepair has definitely made it that much harder. When I purchased my older all-metal Sears Kenmore, the lady told me that the machine needed a tension adjustment at the very least. I called around, trying to find a repair shop that might be able to service my machine at a decent price since it hadn’t been used in some time. The lowest quote I was able to find was $85.
I have a child that needs new clothes pretty soon. I could use some myself, even. I don’t have $85 to drop on this sewing machine, no matter how useful it might be. When I saw that this DIY guide was being offered, I jumped on it. I knew that if my fiance and I couldn’t figure something out, we could always bring his mechanically inclined best friend over to fix anything we might mess up.
The illustrations made it very easy to identify the parts and, like I had hoped, we saved $85. I guess if I had actually purchased this book, I would have saved about $60, but hey, if you rely on your machine, I’d imagine it’s worth it to know how to do the repairs yourself. Be sure to visit their website if you’d like to purchase a manual on serger repairs.
