Inside the Machine

Posted on Sep 1, 2008

Em’s sewing machine has been in a state of disrepair since it arrived here in her suitcase from California. Today, we finally got around to taking it apart to see what was wrong (after searching in vain for a repair manual online - it seems that sewing machine manufacturers have not yet entered the Internet age). Turned out to be a simple problem (one of the belts had slipped off, no doubt during baggage “handling”).

While it was apart, it was so fascinating to watch it in operation that we had to take this video.
