Many of the problems associated with dropped stitches can be attributed to a perished sponge bar.
Sorry, I do not supply Sponge Bars for Bulky Eight machines, or other spares

I have improved these so they can be inserted or removed from either end of the machine,
even in a confined space. Why pay more???

I have been given a virtually brand new Brother 910. The only thing missing is the cards (mylar sheets). I wonder if anyone has some spares for me to buy.

I have just purchased a flatbed and need a table or stand for it.
I actually have the legs for a stand but the frame that connects the machine to the legs is missing. It's a Toyota machine.
I am based in Mount Eden.
Hoping there is something out there!
