Found this little gadget recently – it’s got a few parts missing, so the tensions not right – but its so cool!
Fab wonder of miniature engineering – it does a little chain stitch so only has one thread and loops and the back of the stitch.
And a nice bit of info here on chain stitch sewing machines.
Here’s a fantastic video I found on YouTube about it – http://youtu.be/PX_aKGXc-pE
Haha – “…perfect for mothers and bachelors!”
Tried to find more info online and an instruction booklet but not much luck.
I’d love to get it working properly but I’d need to get the missing parts from somewhere?!
Anyway – that’s probably only interesting to a certain type of sewing nerd.
Not long left – Less than 24 hours to grab a bargain!

Just thought I’d share, I’m quite pleased with this one.
