My name is Christine and I am addicted to bag making!
Interests: Now that is a good question! Sewing (surprise surprise!), mainly bags and more bags however I do like making an occasional collector teddy bear (OK so I once did that full time BUT the bags took over! LOL) I also love cats and dogs and all sorts of wonderful critters. COOKING and housework are NOT my favourite pass times however and I would MUCH rather be making a bag! I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful children.....oh and sometimes even hubby too! I like to laugh so I love to watch a good comedy movie and I like to watch some drama, scary and love stories too! Oh what the heck....I like a lot of things!

Hi….yes I know what you mean about the manual being confusing….I just troubleshoot and maintain in a similar fashion as I have done with my other, older Singer machines as I haven’t come across any websites with info on it either… Sorry I can’t help you more!

Hi Helen, The sewing machine dealer arranged for me to have the zipper foot made ….I believe all they did was have one side of one of the available feet, one that goes on the back arm, cut off. (If I am making sense?) Works a treat! You should talk to your dealer about it! I can send you a pic of what I have if you need it. Hope this helps! Looking forward to seeing you posting in the group!
