As I wish to purchase some secondhand and I am not sure if they will fit my machine Yes, if you are using discs and feet that have all come from the Elna Tavara SA factory Swiss made then you are in luck, all the feet are interchangeable between the machines not the Contessa though, it was made in Japan. The Star series and earlier had one piece feet. The Air Electronics went to a heel and detachable sole design but the height and attachment method is the same between them all. So you can purchase the newer heel and clip on soles and use on the older models if you wish. With the Elnagraph discs almost all the single and double discs can be switched between the machines with the Elnagraph. I have discs from Star Series and Air Electronic and use them all.

Still stocktaking, and comparing treadles Now, counting plates is all very well, but life has to continue unabated, and in spite of the snow. And, I was asked to compare the regular domestic treadle and the industrial types, and thought this might be a useful idea. I have used a Singer 15 class domestic treadle for over 40 years – it’s precise, fast, slow, and strong, and it sews chiffon at least as well as canvas.

Male Pattern Boldness is proud to be the world’s most popular men’s sewing blog! Friends, I have no children of my own, nor do I have anyone else’s. I do wonder, however, what it might be like to teach a small child to sew, how young is too young and, related to this, what kind of sewing machine to start a child on. Many people opt to purchase a toy sewing machine, while others choose an adult machine, perhaps one with a hand crank, or a regular electric machine, to be used only under supervision.

Toy sewing machines have been around nearly as long as sewing machines. They were usually powered by hand, and could produce a respectable chainstitch. The evolution of the toy sewing machine mirrors that of adult machines, particularly in the way sewing machines became increasingly gendered female , and marketed to specific demographic groups college co-ed on the go, young homemaker, etc. Early toy sewing machines looked gender neutral and often were designed to look like miniature versions of adult machines.

Over time, hand cranks gave way to battery-operated, and occasionally even electric, foot pedals. Of course, even when the look was strictly utilitarian, these were primarily intended as toys for girls. But they were sturdy metal machines and they worked. Just like adult sewing machines, with the introduction of plastic in the Sixties, toy sewing machines got flimsy and increasingly shoddy.

Reading some of the feedback for the toy machines for sale today on Amazon , one wonders why anyone bothers buying one. They sound more like a punishment than a creative plaything.
