It has been 20 years since I have sewn,
but I have sewn lots . . . with a new singer hand crank machine I bought 28 years ago.
It is gone now, and my wife came with a Singer Merritt 3015,
it is all tuned up and ready to go . . .
. . . So I am about to start my 7yr old daughters PINK hammock . . .
loading the bobbin with clear nylon thread
and the plastic bobbin blows the end off, just before it is fully loaded.
Ticked . . . yes
so I get out a solid steel bobbin and start loading . . .
. . . what do you know, the steel bobbin blows the end off.
Old junk I guess
