I have a 1930s Singer Featherweight 221 (inherited). I've seen it in action in the not-too-distant past so I know its functional - but me, I've never used a sewing machine in my life.
I'm trying to help throw together some costumes for my boys for Halloween. Most of the props for their costumes I've already completed, but there are a couple of elements that I can't find for purchase and sewing is now unavoidable. What's the quickest way for me to learn the basics of operating a sewing machine? Any recommended books, web sites, etc.? Thanks!
