I did want to buy a bias binding foot for my sewing machine but my machine now has a burning smell.
I was making a skirt yesterday. I hadnt used my machine since before Xmas, I was sewing away, took the skirt away from the machine and without my foot on the pedal the machine stared to sew of its own accord at a crazy speed and there was a burning smell.
Silly question but do you think the machine is on its last legs? Ive had it for 27 years.
So annoying as Ive no job and have to be careful with the money I do have, plus I wanted to start new ideas with the bias binding foot, so the foot is postponed until I can either fix the machine or get a new one.
Does it sound like a machine thats on its last legs to you?
