Handcrank singer sewing machine dating
I take this one out from time to time to use and to demonstrate how sewing machines work in slow motion.It is not just show, however, and I'd like to point out that this type of machine can do more.
This is especially true when combined with the slow speed of this machine.So many great seamstresses started this way, as the clothes are made much like the real thing.Because you have one hand to control fabric and there is no reverse motion your normal routine will change slightly with a handcrank.Keeping the thread from tangling at the beginning is one problem. If does not, the main issue is usually the tension with mine.I feel that hand crank sewing machines do two things exceptionally well: Purse making and doll clothes making. The handcrank sewing machine is best when you need close control of stitching for best results.
This is handy when closing the edges of purses around handles. The photo above shows rick rack that was inserted quite easily.
