  1. Looking to attempt making my first bag.

    Make your own pattern. Measure the front and the back of the bag an add 1/2 inch seam allowance to all sides, same with gusset. Use pasteboard a pattern making material

    I make a lot of hand bags/purses/totes, and I like the looks of French seams but it is hard on my cb4500 cylinder arm machine. Should I be looking at a single needle or double needle post machine

  5. Need help with an idea

    What I would do is put a D-ring, one on each the side of the gusset. One on the back side of the gusset ( right ) an one on the front side (left) that way it wont mater how much weight you have on either side, it will carry evenly with the shoulder strap

    I know it is just used to sew my linings. I have a cb4500 for the heavy stuff. I think I will just toss it then. I have a good treadle from 1898 an it sews great. no LOSS
  7. Antique Singer

    Yes I was hoping I could find help in finding parts for my 1910 Singer # G883240. Its a treadle head only, This machine was giving to me from a friend an I took it to my local sewing shop to have it cleaned up an gone through an there is a part missing. The knob that adjust the stitch length is on the machine but the inside piece that does the actual adjusting that attaches to the backside of the knob is missing. Where can I find parts an is there a break down photo's of the inside of this machine for repair purposes?
