I have a question for all the people out there who know how to use sewing machines. Mostly ladies, I assume, but guys too. I don't care why you know how to use one. I need to learn how to use my "old but not ancient"sewing machine. I admire skills and this is one I don't have.
I hate to admit it, but my legs are short from the waist
down and I can't find pants with a 28" inseam and a fat waist. I'm
tired of rolling up pant cuffs so that I don't walk on them. So I need
to learn how to use a sewing machine to reduce all my 32" inseams to
I have a sewing machine, but it is as foreign to me as a snowblower is to someone who lives at the equator.
1. Its a Montgomery Wards sewing machine, model UHTJ1933, serial number 148 10910
2. I couldn't get it to work right when it was new 25 (or more) years ago.
All I want to do is cuff up a few dozen pants.
So, should I just buy a new one that is more "idiot friendly"?
Or should I learn to use what I have?
Cost is not an issue, but it IS important to me that I do things myself.
Can someone help me figure out how to use this thing or tell me what to buy?
