A big Thank You to Anthony Ferranti, 3rd generation Sewing Machine Mechanic! Anthony was very generous with his time and expertise. Here are some of the take aways from his lecture:
- Most problems originate from the needle and bobbin case area
- Always try changing needle, making sure to thread towards flat side of needle
- Size 12-14 needle will do most jobs
- Only use your needle threader on needles over size 11
- Avoid pulling fabric with left hand as you are sewing. Results in bending needle and dinging bobbin case.
