Tuesday, July 30, 10 am – 1 pm

Steve Pauling

One reason older mechanical machines are being rediscovered and appreciated is that sewers can perform most maintenance procedures themselves! We will open up the “hood” and discover the fundamentals of performing machine maintenance on a vintage mechanical sewing machine. Students will walk through the steps of inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and trouble-shooting common problems for their sewing machines.
