sewing machine and more

Last month I purchased a used industrial sewing machine from Craig's list.

It needed some minor repair and a slower motor so it would work with paper. I just got it back from Missouri Sewing Machine last week and then re-assembled it today!!

new motor with customizable
speed control
It came with that great blue lamp attached and the manual (with instructions on how thread it and all).

After a quick test run with some larger paper, I can say it works great and I'll be using it again tomorrow!

Plus, earlier this year I had a jig made (by Jonathan who makes my panels) for the older Kenmore machine - so now smaller paper sews without getting caught on something.

More sewn drawings to come!
