Recently my parents were tidying up the attic and found this:
My first sewing machine. Mum used to sew for me and my dolls, and of course - I wanted to sew, too. :) And since mum's sewing machine wasn't appropriate for a little girl, I got a sewing machine for kids, probably for my birthday. Unfortunately, neither mum nor dad remember how old I was then. Although I do remember the machine, I don't remember sewing anything special. I guess I was just playing and stitching scraps of fabric. :)
It's a chain stitch sewing machine and it works on batteries. Except that it doesn't work. The looping hook doesn't catch a thread from the needle and therefore no loop is created. It looks like the needle thread turns so that the hook can't grab it. Any idea how to fix this? Does anyone own something similar?
