Columbus, Ohio Workshops, June 2016
by April Henry
Our Columbus, Ohio workshops were a blast, and both groups were a pleasure to work with and teach all about their Singer Featherweights and maintenance / servicing skills.
Here are a few photos from both days:
Workshop members learned about the oxidation from the lead tube and why it can be important to keep it clear from underneath machine.
Before and after -- cleaning all that lint from under the needle plate... This machine had quite a few yards of thread pass through it's needle!
Karen with the tan Featherweight and Debbie with the black Featherweight - friends enjoying the Workshop together.
Tasia and Julian came together and each brought a machine to work on. It's always fun to meet a fellow husband and wife team!
Carmon showing on the big screen how to disassemble the tension unit one step at a time and how to align and calibrate it correctly.
Ruthie putting the final touches on a Featherweight Case of her choosing from the Workshop.
Our Featherweight Workshops really are a family affair. Sometimes our young Ruthie will be of assistance, too, when she's not working on polishing a Featherweight Case. Here she is showing Meg how the Bobbin Tension Meter works to set the standard bobbin tension at 20-25 grams.
Meg was an excellent pupil! 😉

Thank you, everyone, for joining us in Columbus! It was such a warm welcome and we enjoyed meeting each of you. Thank you for the many sweet and yummy treats for our drive to the next stop.... New York!
