This is the darndest looking machine (it’s Vesta’s). Anyone care to take a guess as to what it does? If you read about it on the forum, please give others a chance to identify it first.

    So that your readers are more confused, the hand wheel runs backwards compared to most machines and the bobbin has to be inserted backwards too. It’s really small with only 8″ of work space between the needle and head!

    I’ve rarely come across this model.

    I have this exact machine but her and I still have major issues and my technician does not seem to really know the purpose for this machine..I use it for a straight stitch but I know I have been missing something….

    This has me puzzled. Am I seeing correctly that there is some sort of binding being run to the needle, or maybe it’s small elastic? The model looks like a singer. I’m really trying to figure out why the tension knob and everything has been moved to the side, seems like whatever is sewn on it would have gotten in it’s way, so it was moved to the side?

    Hee hee. This is fun! Christy, we’ve worked out most of our issues in the last week or so, so ask away in the forum and we’ll try to help. I heart this machine, now.

    I have actually used this machine before – setup for a couple of different operations. It works well except for when the needle thread breaks. It has funky needle threading and the thread gets tangled when it breaks and snaps up into the thread guides.

    Well, it would be cool to see a video of it in action. I was a little jealous that my school got a 2 thread 2 bobbin machine after I left. I don’t think it would have been as useful as a blind hemmer, if I’d had a choice. :-)
