... the A40 bridge is closed at Monmouth with the river the highest it's ever been and parts of the town have been evacuated.

@Ploshkin You can see the closed bridge (and the river level) via the traffic cameras.

A UK sewing magazine has been using a similar photo to promote their Dressmaker of the Year on social media.

I need to venture out this afternoon to deliver one of my spare sewing machines to a friend and I think there might be a hint of blue sky!

She has used a machine previously (her Granny’s Bernina), but doesn’t currently have a machine. Once she found out that two of us in the office have machines, she’s asked us to do a couple of small mending jobs. She was thinking of getting a Singer from Lidl, but hopefully my old Husqvarna will be a better option. There is a bit of self interest involved as I’d rather spend the time showing her how to use the machine than doing any more repair jobs.  :devil:

If you're looking at Barnyarns for threads, take a look at "Hugo's Amazing Tape" too - it was mentioned in a recent email from them and may solve your unravelling problem.

Thank you for sorting this and I hope it all goes smoothly otherwise I could end up having to do some work instead of spending time here and that would never do  :o

Is there any system in place for posting updates about the process should it take longer than expected?  For example, I think people could view a Twitter account using a web browser without having to sign up to Twitter.

I think it is a blouse and skirt, not a dress, but perhaps @Ann can confirm this.

Oh dear, @Wychall , sorry to hear it was not as described. I wonder if people think if the needle goes up and down a few times it means a machine is in working order (or perhaps I am being too optimistic about human nature).

Vintage Machines / Re: My new treadle machine
« on: January 26, 2020, 11:24:23 AM »
There are some details about the different types of 201 machines on the ISMACS website.
http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/model-list/classes-200-299.html

From what I can tell, 201K refers to the class of the machine and where it was made (K for Kilbowie I. Scotland). There are then variations on the number for more specific models - for example, 201-1 is a treadle, 201-2 has a potted motor, 201-3 has a belt motor and 201-4 is a hand crank.

Could the 201K manual be larger because it includes details for treadles, motors and hand cranks whereas the 201-2 manual is specific to one model?
