I thrifted this little guy last weekend! I almost left the store without it, but thankfully my BQF (best quilting friend) Tricia talked me into picking it up.
Great color combination, a salmon pink bottom, and a light green/medium green machine.
And the machine came with the original manual and accessories pouch which has two needles, a needle threader, and measuring tape.
I threaded it up and discovered that it didn't quite sew right. It's a chainstitch machine, and the hook/paddle underneath the machine was out of time with the needle. I managed to fix it and get it going.
The chainstitch looks like a straight stitch on the top, but when you look at the back it almost looks like a single row of crochet.
Compared to the Sew-Rite toy sewing machine I found last year, this little guy is really rough. It's very loud, very touchy, and came out of time very easily. I planned to shoot a little video of the machine running, but I couldn't keep it in time long enough!
So, no go for sewing with this wee machine. But, this little guy will look fantastic on display in my sewing space!
