It's alway cheaper to get those aunty store at the wet market to do it. You may need to get a better machine to do professional alteration.

i was taught sewing in my diploma, practice with it for 3 months before i could get the hang of it, was using the sewing machine actively for 4 years the industrial ypes (professional). I say its not an easy skill to enquire, some my my seamtress sews worse than me. Better to send of to Far East Shopping centre to repair/alter your garments.

i'm not a steamter anymore, sold off my gear and using a computer and mouse and a camera to earn my living.

Why don't you organise an MO for sewing machines? There appear to be a lot of SNAGs on this board who might like to sew or learn how to ;-)

since young i been trained to use those manual sewing machine, tried on those modern type too. if you are really free, they are easy to learn and fun to use :)

often i see them lying around at Cash Converters a cheap price. you may like to check out one. don't worry, cash converters only take in working units thus selling a working one too!

Really.. u must be good in that. I heard of Cash Converter. But I have a very bad mindset :( i don't like second hand thing. -.,-... The lady from Courts (near my home) said if i buy from her.. i can go back anytime to ask her about the sewing.. she said as long as i want to learn will teach me. Sound good right.. i have 6 skirts to amend.. can bring one by one to ask her :p

bulb is for lighting up the needle/sewing area.

Hmm, why don't you send your mother-in-law for the lessons instead? Wasn't it your plan to make her use the sewing machine for you? kekekeke (No wonder there are all these stories about daughter-in-laws) :bsmilie:
