I used to replace the braid on some of the royal household uniforms and officers dress uniforms, it was super top quality braid but it still wore pretty badly and quite quickly frayed so I think you may have a heck of a search on your hands, sorry.

I'm trying to figure out why anyone wouldn't be able to match such large checks  especially when they are trying to use them for pattern sales  :thinking:. The Hepworth pattern has much smaller checks and from what I could see in the photo's they looked nicely matched if you don't look at how the waistband was matched to the body.

Welcome @queenratty, I'm sure you'll like it here  :)

@JohnSnug I've been around both industrial and domestic sewing machines for more years than I care to remember and I've never seen or heard of a lefty machine.
I'm right handed but due to an accident when I was around 11 my right hand is disabled so I've had to become left hand dominant, I have no problems using machines designed for right handers, the only thing I would say is you might find a hand crank a bit difficult to use unless of course you like to challenge yourself like I do.

@Adrian It might help if you could post some photo's so we can see what's happening.

Hi @Anto welcome from me too  :). I love taking my machines to bits too only the old fashioned mechanical ones though, I don't think I'd dare with the modern computerised ones. In a former life it was quicker to try and fix them myself rather than waiting for a mechanic to come out.

If the bits are smallish I generally make toys for my dog or my sons cat, bigger pieces if they look like they will cut into fat quarters I take to the charity shop.
