Whether you have a new sewing machine or a vintage one, the Internet is a great resource for finding replacement parts and accessories. Although they are still capable of doing the job, vintage and antique machine parts are quite rare, especially if the manufacturer is no longer in business. If you have an older model in your possession and are in need of parts, don’t despair. There are many different stores and online outlets where you can find replacement parts for Brother machines, Singer machines, Baby Lock machines and other popular brands.

Knowing the parts of a sewing machine makes it possible for you to find quality accessories that match your machine. You may need to replace the foot pedal, the bobbin winder, the power cord, or the spool holder. The foot pedal controls the speed of the sewing machine. This piece is not a necessity on many newer machines. The presser foot exerts pressure on the fabric. All machines come with this part. The hand wheel allows you to align fabric to guides built into the machine and place it under the needle. If you have a newer model, this piece is built into the machine.Singer Sewing machine

Another essential part is the light bulb. This piece allows you to see what is working with more clarity. You may also need to replace the needle. It is recommended to have a supply of these items handy in case one breaks while you are using the machine. Make sure you purchase needles in different sizes because you may need to change hands depending on the type of fabric you use.
There are many different types of sewing machines, but the basic parts are similar. Each machine is accompanied by a manual with detailed instructions. If you don’t have a manual, you can find one on the manufacturer’s website. Another way to find replacement parts is to contact a local vendor. He can help you find parts and accessories for the type of machine that you own.

Search for local or national forums and chat boards where people are talking about sewing machines and quilting. Post an ad in order to let others know that you are looking for replacement parts. Contact other members and ask them where you can find the parts you are interested in. These forums are usually populated by collectors and avid sewers who can help you find the right accessories for your machine. Make sure you also contact the manufacturer by phone or email. A sales representative can give you directions and indicate the best sources for finding sewing machine replacement parts.

Sewing machine replacement parts are not so hard to find. With proper research, you can purchase parts and accessories for sewing machines at an affordable price.

What I’ve been up to . . .

Wow, where did May go?? I can’t believe it’s already June . . .

Let’s see, at the beginning of May was MSWF, which I feel like I’m still recovering from!

Then a couple weeks later I went to Galveston for some job-related training . . . it was okay, but I would have much rather been there with B on a mini-vacation than for four full days of work!

There was a cool bronze sculpture on the pier outside my hotel of a guy feeding seagulls.
I was afraid to actually feed the seagulls myself . . . I was fearful that they might swarm me like in the movie The Birds.

One of the nights I was there I walked a few blocks over and got a veggie burger and took it back to my room to eat . . . I opened my bag and found an inordinate number of condiment packages.
The color is called “red maple”, but I think it’s really eggplanty . . . I may have to order more of this, because it was luscious to work with, and the color is rich rich rich!

Next up on my wheel is a bit more “practice fiber”, and then I think I’ll finally be ready to spin up a big project! In the meantime, I’m also trying to decide what to do with all the various-colored 1oz skeins I’ve spun up already — they are each about 40-50 yards, I think. Any ideas?

1) What was I doing ten years ago?
Working in a molecular toxicology research lab at Penn State, for the Best Boss In The World (BBIW). Oh, how I miss working in Jack’s lab!
2) What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
clean the kitchen (check!)
clean the floor in the downstairs bathroom
get a pedicure
knit!
at least neaten the living room — it looks like a tornado hit it!
3) Snacks I enjoy:
banana chips

gardettos mustard pretzels
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
pay off my house and all my other debt. buy a new car for my mom, and one for my stepdad. maybe buy myself a smartcar, and make my whole house solar-powered.

5) Places I have lived:
Upsate NY; Philadelphia, PA; New Jersey; Arlington, TX, Albuquerque, NM, Denton, TX, State College, PA, Dallas, TX. Before NY State I lived in all kinds of places (Army bases), but that was all before I was aware of where I lived, so I’m not sure it really counts.
