ask, is it really worth repairing an old sewing machine which
may cost me ₤50 or maybe more, when in the shopping centres
there are new sewing machines, which cost ₤30- ₤40 and have 3 to
25 year guarantees? Well, “old is gold”. If your sewing machine
has been reliable for 20 years or more, then trust me, when
fixed it will work even longer. Many of the cheap plastic sewing
machines are like single use photo cameras- you stitch couple of
stitches and once there are problems, you just throw it away
regardless of any ‘long lasting guarantee’. Those sorts of
sewing machines are made for selling, not for sewing.
