I know all people who sew have "family attachments" to certain brands and since there are many who can't afford "brand new". I am suggesting that when you shop for a new (different) machine, and I have had many great ones in my 60 odd years of sewing, be sure to find one with the manual. It will tell you, and this is very important, "how to thread your machine". It will also explain your particular type of tension adjustments and how to use your attachments if you have them. This might seem silly to some, but I have seen many great machines at garage sales and the sellers had no idea where the manual was. Those things are very pricey without a sewing machine. Just a little extra watchfulness will save you a lot of aggravation and turmoil in your life. Enjoy your machines and manuals.
