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 machine spares

These flexible sponge bars are now available for purchase at $12.50 each (+ $4.00 per NZ Post)
(I can send 2 sponge bars for that freight charge)
For your club or group - Enquire for larger quantities
for both Standard & Bulky machines. (Brother, Singer, Toyota etc.)
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???
