SOURCE: How to remove mildew smell frim leather coat

Leather can be in many forms. It's difficult to distinguish sometimes real from a man made product. However for real leather A coat might be called a finished leather ( shiny ) or a suede finish. If it's shiny you would wipe it down with a Damp cotton cloth. That will clean it off, no chemicals of any kind. It's the skin of a cow and will take on the odor of things that come in contact with it and smoke. Airing it out it will help but might require a good dry cleaner that specializes in leather.
If it's suede brushing it is about all you can do on your own. The lining of a coat is usually smooth satin or a polyester. That also could be wiped down with clean damp cloth also. No soap it will go thought the lining and wet the leather.

How do you replace a complete zipper and what do you need

Bring your garment to the sewing store. Find a replacement zipper like the one on your garment and make sure the replacement zipper is long enough (ask a clerk for assistance).

Then when you get it home, you will need to carefully remove the broken zipper by cutting the thread stitching that holds the zipper in place. Use a thread nipper or seam ripper but be careful to not cut the fabric. When you get the threads cut, you should be able to remove the broken zipper. Line up the replacement zipper in the open seam, pin in place and stitch.

Clothes stuck in the machine what to do

use a flashlight right on the drum, spin by hand and look, use a coat-hanger to remove small items. Put small stuff in a zipper bag after that. then later, it went to the dump. good luck

Iwant to sew a separating zipper on a coat. what does the zipper foot look like for singer model 3116?

Just like the regular working foot, most zipper feet look the same regardless of machine. At least, the part of the foot that is actually in contact with the work: small, solid--no thread slot or needle well in the middle--and a small notch on each of the left and right sides.

Zipper won't zip up its almost shut closed

If all the teeth of the length of the zipper are snapped together, it is closed and the pull piece is all the way at the ends of the two matching sections. It appears jammed at that point, right? If so you may need to use a little muscle to pull the end links one way and the zipper tab the other. A pair of plyers sure could help.

Toyota sp100 sewing machine - can't lower foot pressure on clothing

Berend: Thick fabrics require a longer stitch length. If the longer stitch length doesn't work check your attachments for an Easy Feed foot (It sort of mimics a walking foot.)

Invisible zipper how to pit it in a skirt or what foot do i use?

First of all what kind of machine do you have? My machine has a foot for invisible zippers - if your machine
is older - they sell a package of feet to use for invisible
zippers. The feet are by Coats and Clarks and can be
found near the invisible zippers in your fabric store.
Inside the package you will find instructions on how
to put an invisible zipper in. If you have any problem
google "how to put an invisible zipper in " and you will probably find several to choose from . Good luck.
