When to buy a new machine and which?
I have an old Touch N Sew Singer in a cabinet–it was given to me in 1969 or thereabouts. I was sewing with a heavy fabric recently and the bobbin broke completely. It is as if I sheared the gears. Nothing connects to it at all. Would it be difficult/expensive to fix?
I sew infrequently, although I used to sew quite a bit. I have heard people talk about Singer Featherweights. Are they good for non-serious sewers like me? Are the new ones, the Featherweight 2’s, good? Are there better machines I should look at? I am overwhelmed with the technology that has happened in the last 35 years! Help! and thanks…calliemarsh
