If you've sewn for a long time, you've probably forgotten more about sewing than you can imagine. You'll probably re-learn a few things you forgot if you re-read your sewing machine's manual. I had that experience recently, and I'd forgotten my old reliable machine could do so much. What kind of sewing machine do you use? I bought my favorite, oldest, and current machine new in 1978 and have used it ever since. That machine is a Bernina Electronic Record 830, the work horse of all work horses of home sewing machines, as far as I know. I've owned a dozen or so sewing machines and sergers over the years, but nothing of them have been as reliable as the Bernina. I might add other machines to my collection, but I won't get rid of the Bernina or my first White serger. They run like tops, and they are dependable. I service them myself, giving them a needle change and quick cleaning after they've sewn about 8 hours, and I give them a thorough cleaning and oiling about once a year. If you don't clean your own machine, you should try it. I got sticker shocked when I saw a sewing machine service price list. They charge $120 to clean and check a non-computerized machine. Holy cow - I didn't know how much money I'd saved over the years!

I learned to sew on my mom's old Universal sewing machine. I received my first sewing machine from my parents for high school graduation. It was also a Universal, and I wore it out between 1967 when I got in and 1978 when I bought the Bernina. I have enjoyed many satisfying hours sewing. I hope you enjoy sewing as much as I do.
