Go get a couple packages of Large skewers. Boil some water in a Medium pan or tea pot. You want steam and lots of it so a tea pot would be ideal if you can stand the noise. A garment steamer might work too. Hold the book page edges down over the steam. Steam, and use your fingers to open a page or two. Place a skewer between each page. Remember you want steam not wet.use the skewers to hold the pages open as it dries... you can even hang the book by the skewers over a large pot.

In the mean time you might be able to find the manual online if you google the brand name of the knitting machine and instruction manual.

    Unfortunately this idea will not help as the pages have ripped and words can't be read due to being stuck together

  • sylviaivie Nov 08, 2012

    Well, it was a long shot. Have you tried checking if there is any tutorials on Youtube for a knitting machine? I tossed mine in the trash because I could never get it to knit... but it seems to me it came with a video as well as the manual.

    Here's a video for a brother... perhaps it is enough to get you started.

SOURCE: I inherited my mother's Elna Lotus SP sewing

Hi Jeanne, you might want to check out my tip on early Swiss Elnas,

http://www.fixya.com/support/r10602655-acquired_early_swiss_elna_sewing

it should help you get the Lotus going. Lovely machine. If you are in the USA you may also want to contact White Sewing Center as he may have this manual available for sale or a copy of it. www.whitesewingcenter.com.

Remember to use the Elna 7 hole dished metal bobbins, there are 7 holes on the top, and looks like this11_7_2011_6_23_57_am.jpg

Always wind it and insert it into the machine this way. Don't use any other bobbin. Standard needles 130/705H, flat shank to the back.

Check out my other tip on bobbin winding too, it is important to keep tension onto the thread spool that you are winding thread off as the machine doesn't tension the thread for you. So you need to apply pressure to the top of the thread spool as you wind off, use the curved handle of your scissors on the top of the spool.

Feel free to connect to me and ask if you have any other questions, I have a Lotus TSP at home and its almost identical to the SP. Happy stitching.

Zig-zag settings


you probably shouldn't be using a zig zag for that application. But the multi-stitch zig zag.

Please look at page 40 of your manual for information.

As for needle breaking check to make sure your need is the correct one for the thread and fabric. Also make sure your pressure foot is the one recommended for the stitch. Consider this... most thicker fabrics require a longer stitch.

Just type in 1755 and click on search.

Singer Samba 6 sewing machine


It would be wise to have the machine cleaned & serviced. Do you have a manual for it? Did it come with oil at one time? I found a free manual at
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7442.html

You have to register (free)...choose to skip the popups (2)...and you can save the manual to your hard drive.

I checked the manual...you don't need to oil the machine...but page 61-63 shows cleaning...and it's basic. You take the two screws from the throat plate, remove the bobbin case & brush the inside of the machine bed out...I use a small artists plastic bristle brush, or a small childs tooth brush.

Hope this helps.

German language


G'day mate!

Follow these steps:-

Turn machine off.

Press button 1 and hold in whilst turning on the machine.

The four languages will appear. Select the number coresponding to the language you require.English should be #1.

Not all Pfaffs have English loaded into the computer, but if it was there before, should be no drama.

Good luck!
