Hello everyone,

I am still attempting a revival form the land of horror theses days. I actually felt okay enough ot log on after so long. BUt that is another story for another section...

Hi Mary... Arub here in Vermont...still on the mend.


I have acquired 2 new machines.. A beautiful Singer 221 which sews like a absolute dream and a Singer 15-91.

My problem. I am trying to thread my 15-91 and Simply can not remember how to do it. I found it at a thrift shop and the lady did not have a clue as to the wonderful machine she had in her posession.. I paid a whopping total of $12.50 for it and It does sew beautifuly. I checked it out at the store and managed to maintain a straight face and demeanor. I whopped all the way home and forgot to take a look at the threading before pulling the thread out...:bang:

May be my state of mind is still not completely where I want it to be, because I can not seem to figure it out and I know it is something simple.... Oh why didn't look first....:sick:

I am really on a extremely tight budget and can not afford to get a manual at this time. Can anyone out there walk me through this. I really feel like sewing something and that is a serious plus for me. I have not sewn in a very long time. I think this will be good therapy for me.

thanks in advance

If no, you might find it in this list. acturing%20Company
