    Learn to Sew!

    I am so sorry to take so long to reply! I have been traveling for months... Not all oils are the same, but a good sewing machine oil will work for all machines. You can buy a small container of sewing machine oil at JoAnn's or sewing machine retailers BUT do not use 3-in1 oil, it's not good for sewing machines. My best, Marguerita

  • Old Sewing Machines are Hidden Treasures!

    Hi, I used a Kenmore for years and I loved it. For the most part it did everything that the expensive machines did. BUT, I could not get as good results in free-motion quilting with the Kenmore (would would not believe the lengths I went to trying) as I did on a used Bernina that I finally bought.
