Telephone message from a recent repair service customer:


"Wow!! What  a joy it is to use this machine now!
It’s got a stitch! It doesn’t pull, it doesn’t tug, it doesn’t spit, it doesn’t bite; wow! Thank you !"

This is an ideal machine for machine quilting whether using it on a frame or by itself. This is an old industrial Singer sewing machine made in the good old USA. We have converted it to do free motion sewing. We have removed all of the feed mechanism and about 3/4 of the moving parts. We have gone right through the machine replacing anything it may need and installed a brand new hood system similar to the Singer featherweight 221 and believe me it sews like one as well. We then install a home sewing machine motor 110 volt and a modern foot pedal system. Next we put a new needle plate with just a single needle hole (not a slot) and with no slot for the feed dog or zig zag. Finally, we install a new quilting foot made of steel along with a new needle chuck to activate it. This machine has over 10 inches of clearance from the needle to the neck of the machine compared to the average of 6 3/4 of most home machines, plus at the neck of the machine it slopes to the right allowing for more clearance for your quilt and at the left side it does the same thing. The neck of the machine is also very skinny to allow more height for your quilt, that is one of the main reasons we selected this machine for your quilting. The main reason we selected this machine is that the hook system is to the right of the needle like a singer featherweight 221 where as most home machine that have zig zag the hook is behind the needle and this doesn't sew as well in all directions when you are machine quilting. The quality of stitching from this machine for machine quilting is very hard to beat, plus you are getting a very simple and durable machine that will last for many years. stop by for a demo today. We give a 1 year warrantee on this machine and free training at an unbelievable price of $999.00  Put this on a Grace machine and you have a very affordable quilting system.
