Session two (2:30 – 4:00) will cover maintaining your Singer 301, 401/403/404 and 500/503 machines. Kenmore machines may be brought in, as well. Sign up and payment due at the May 24 meeting.

If you are having difficulties with your machine, eg thread breaking, tension issues, etc, diagnosis and repair will be covered after maintenance portion is complete. It will be helpful to let Lori know in advance of the workshop what issues you are having.
