Well I think I finally killed my 20+ year old Sear's Kenmore machine. I was sewing the sleeping bag from SG I ordered into a topquilt and it stopped working. The motor still goes, but the needle does not move up or down. Anyone have any ideas or know how I can fix it. I am planning on taking the cover off and see what I find.
On a good note, my mom just bought a new machine and I have already called dibbs on her old one which I will pick up tomorrow. So the sewing will go on. On another good note I now have a 50 degree top quilt (which I think I could go lower in the hammock) for a total cost of $33 and weighing in at 15 oz. I'll start a thread with directions after Christmas.
After modifying it I think it would be pretty easy to mod a sleeping bag into an underquilt. I am going to try that if I can get ahold of a cheap synethic bag rated into the 30's.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
