Question about Magic Stitch Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

A vintage 'Magic Stitcher' is for sale on Ebay and Etsy. I have one without the instruction booklet. I really would like to find out what the instructions say about using it. It is a little thing about 6 inches long...kind of like a bullet shape..pointed on the end where you fasten a sewing machine needle. It does a 'chain stitch'...but how? There is a picture of it on the top of the box it came in...and shows sewing a chain stitch from the top of the fabric. I have been sewing for about 60 years....and never saw one of these before now. I found it at a thrift shop. Thank you.

Hi, I found this blog. It sort of shows the instructions. I found one of them in a box of old sewing things from a friend. I thought it was an old fishing bobber LOL. Hope this helps.J.Leigh

What is the going selling cost of a Singer, model # 1019 machine?

You would need to search for recent sales or current sales (ie eBay, etsy...) to make that determination. There is a lot involved in determining value, ie the working and visual condition of the machine, accessories included, where it's located, etc. FWIW, newer Singers are probably not worth a lot in resale. New machines can be purchased for less than $100.

I was given a pattern for a "flower" blanket, which looks like it came out of Crochet Magazine. I was not given the second page which details the edging and pompoms, and I cannot find it online...

If you have the pattern number, you can keep an eye on some of the for-sale web sites (eBay, etsy, etc.) but the chances of locating it are probably not going to be successful.

    The instruction manual is available through Singer for $15. But I bet you can find it less expensively on Etsy or Ebay.

    Where can I get memory cards for my Janome 9000

    I own the MC9000. I bought the Magic Box plus and I download designs from embroidery websites and transfer them to the memory card (ATA PC card) that came with the Magic Box. It is rewritable so I just switch out designs as I please. I bought the Magic Box about 5 years ago and paid $200 for it. It is super easy to use. I hope this helps.
