A Good Yarn / Hot water bottle cover pattern needed, please
« on: December 30, 2018, 18:00:25 PM »
Does anybody please know of a hot water bottle cover pattern which is knit in the round?  I can find plenty of flat ones  :o but not in the round!

Please don't suggest adapting a pattern to in the round  :[ it confuzzles me horribly :P

Here's hoping  :)

Thank you very much  :flower:

Vintage Machines / Frister Rossman 45 Mk1 feet?
« on: July 25, 2018, 13:15:05 PM »
Could somebody please tell me what feet this model takes, Frister Rossman 45 Mk1?  I may have the offer of one shortly, much cheaper than the new machine I was saving for  :) Would it take standard Singer feet, please?  I still have a box of some left from my Singer 201 I sold. 

So grateful for any help, thank you  :flower:

Sewing Machines / Janome HD2200
« on: July 01, 2018, 18:02:27 PM »
What are your thoughts, please, on the Janome HD2200?  -<  I was saving for a Toyota Oekaki, but also like the Janome enormously because it's strong and simple.  Having had my desktop computer fail irreparably at just three years old, I am nervous of spending on a computerised machine  :(

I am looking for a machine for quilting, some dressmaking and for curtains, dog bedding and so forth.

Having let all my  :vintage: machines go, I am without a machine until later in the year and would like a new, shiny one  :D but it's a huge investment and I would be very grateful, please for any advice  8)  :flower:

Brand new beading loom in box  :)I

£6.00 plus postage at cost, please  :)

Paypal please, thank you very indeed  :)

I have a 3/4 Singer sewing machine free, if you can collect from the Bude area  :)

It works very well, but the base is battered and it has a few paint chips - it was bought to restore, but I am having a frantic clear out to avoid needing a convoy of removal vans  :D  :D  :D

A big bag of needle felting 'stuff' complete starter kit, new  :)

£10 plus postage please.  I only charge actual cost of sending  :)

Paypal, please.

Thank you  very much  :)

Does anyone please have a copy of The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon Mollie Makes special edition, published January 2015 that I could buy?  It was on sale in Sainsbury's at the time.

If anyone can help, that would be wonderful!

Thank you very much in hope  8)

Vintage Machines / Singer 411g
« on: March 11, 2018, 14:37:23 PM »
Would anyone be interested in a lovely Singer 411g with all cams, in a cabinet?  Electric and treadle as well?  It was serviced some years ago and not used since.

I can post pictures if anyone would be interested in buying this?  It's a beauty, but common sense has to prevail  :'(

Please, someone, be tempted  :ninja:  :)

A beautiful vintage Frister and Rossman :vintage: for sale.

Fully working, but a slight problem with the bobbin winder, it does wind but needs to be held in place as it doesn't engage - probably user error or a very simple fix!

I would like £30 or near offer, please.

Hoping this finds a loving new home  :)

Collection only from the Bude area of North Cornwall, or I can send by Parcelforce at a cost of £20.

A lovely Essex chain stitch sewing machine, maroon colour.  Extension table, instructions, original guarantee card and clamp.

I would like £30 to include p&p, please.

Thank you  :)

Vintage Machines / Help! Sell or keep?
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:04:23 PM »
Advice desperately needed please! 

I have a Singer 401 in a beautiful condition in a perfect cabinet, and also a Singer 319 again, beautiful condition in a table.  Would you keep or sell????  I may have a very long haul move coming up and need to drastically, drastically clear out!  I simply cannot take nearly a dozen sewing machines  :'(

I don't use either of these.  Would anyone here be interested in them - I can't bear to put them on eBay, I want someone who will love and cherish them  :)

I have no idea of value.  Please advise me, someone  :(

For Sale, Wanted & Free to a good home / Wanted - Yarn Swift, please
« on: January 30, 2018, 19:02:46 PM »
Please, does anyone have a yarn swift - umbrella swift - for sale?  I just cannot wind wool skeins on my own  :'( I would be so very grateful if anyone has one they would sell me!  Thank you  :)

Vintage Machines / I'm stuck!
« on: January 24, 2018, 12:54:44 PM »
Please can someone tell me how to wind the bobbin on this Frister and Rossman? 

The bobbin fits very nicely into the winder, but there doesn't seem to be any thread guide to move the thread as it winds?

The other problem is that I can't disengage the bobbin winder  :'(

I'm stuck!  Please help  :'(

Vintage Machines / Brother motor
« on: January 11, 2018, 15:09:59 PM »
Can anyone help, please?

I have a Brother Zig Zag electric machine, no model number that I can see, but the paper in the base is dated 1962, so vintage!

The motor looks to be in a very good condition, and runs beautifully - a nice speed, not too fast - but, the pedal and lead look lethal  :( the pedal is badly cracked.  I have no access to a repair shop or electrical shop.  Do I need to replace the whole motor and pedal, or is there an easier fix?

This is such a lovely machine- it looks so clean inside but other than the very short test drive, I'm frightened to use it  :(

Please can anyone advise me?  :flower:
