  • my bargain :-)

    i got this singer from a car boot for 2 quid !!! when i first started to use it , it went bang and made all the electric go off
    so when i went to get my Elna fixed( the upper tension stopped working)i asked the man if he had a motor for it, he had and only wanted 20 quid for it, (Ive seen them on line for 115 :shock: ) so i took it home,DH got it out to change it and i took him to try it first, and it worked !!! beautifully,




    i took the motor back round to the nice man, he has fixed my Elna for 25quid! so i know have 3 working machine and look what he had!!!



    they are different cams that do different stitch in the machine, plus some needles feet and replacement parts, which i prolly cant get from anywhere else anymore, and guess what..... have gave me the lot for free!!!! even argued with me when i said i would sort through them and bring the rest back, and told me to put them on ebay if there were duplicates!!! what a lovely, lovely man !!! we are going to go back and get the motor next month when we have more pennies, but if anyone needs a good sewing machine shop i can highly recommend this one in tunstall

        OMG I had the exact same machine as my first sewing machine when I was doing my O'level. I had it til a couple of years ago when I got a computerized Janome one. It gave me many years of happy sewing, well done on your bargain, happy stitching.

            No not at all. I would have been dancing up and down the street. I bought a manual for my old Treadle off ebay a while back I was like a kid in a sweet shop.
