5. Reviving an Old Sewing Machine

On today’s episode we’re talking about how to get that old inherited sewing machine ready to go and I guarantee it’ll be amazing!

If you’re anything like me and love to underline and highlight, you can download the transcript of this episode.

The main takeaways from today’s episode:

  • You can get an awesome machine at Garage sales or on Craigslist and FaceBook marketplace
  • Always make sure you have the foot pedal and electrical cord for the machine before you buy
  • Sewing Machines require tune ups and regular maintenance
  • Everything is online these days, even manuals for sewing machines made in the 70s
  • Your sewing environment contributes just as much to your sewing as the machine does

I worked with Nicole in a one on one environment on a large quilt. I have limited sewing experience and Nicole’s expertise was invaluable for this large project.

I highly recommend Nicole as an instructor and would personally have another session in a heartbeat!

I seriously didn’t even know the names of parts of my sewing machine before I worked with Nicole. She walked me through everything step by step. And it was amazing. She taught me the ins and outs of my machine and how to add each basic concept together. It was invaluable, because now I can figure things out and get creative without fearing the dreaded unravel!
