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:

Cleaning off the lead oxidation on a Singer Featherweight 221 electrical tube under the machine.

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!

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!

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!
