Hallo from Mid-Wales
« on: September 20, 2020, 23:14:35 PM »
Hallo, new member here. I've just acquired a lovely 1940 Singer 28K hand cranked machine from a local charity shop. Spent the last two or three days checking, servicing and oiling it, and it now works beautifully. I've done a couple of rows of stitching on some old sheeting with it, the first time I've ever used a sewing machine, and it wasn't too shabby!

I shall probably be asking lots of questions over the next few weeks as I get to grips with this great old machine.

Gary.

Croeso Gary, there aren't many of us in the Welsh TSP cohort.  We can, of course, be recognised by our woollies, wellies and waterproofs.
There are plenty of people on here waiting to inspire, advjse and tempt you.

Welcome @garynortheast.  There is a small contingent of men on the forum, some more active than others. 
What goes around comes around.

Welcome Gary from another of the contingent in the principality.

Croeso Gary, there aren't many of us in the Welsh TSP cohort.  We can, of course, be recognised by our woollies, wellies and waterproofs.

Can't really argue, but today it is already over 20°C and completely windless up this mountain.  Creepy...  ><
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Welcome from me too @garynortheast, it's so nice to see more men joining us. Ask what you like we've got a combined knowledge of probably thousands of years so someone will have the answer you need 👍.
