Question
I'm moving house and have an old singer sewing machine I want to get rid of. The only mark I have on it is EB911731. Do you know anything about this particular model and who would want it.
Many thanks.

Pauline

Answer
If you have a local Facebook site in town like we do, you could advertise in there. Someone might want it. Old machine including singer are everywhere, depending on what part of the country your from. Not sure what it is worth without seeing it, or if you want to give it away. There might be some needy family you could help, and you would feel so much better knowing it goes to someone who appreciates it.

Expertise

Depending on the mechanical knowledge off owner, I can answer just about any question they ask. One lady asked about her feed dogs not going back up, some machines will not go back up unless you turn the wheel over, (start sewing). It sounds simple but sometimes you never think of it.

Experience

I've been servicing sewing machines since 1989, I still service machines for Northwestern Ontario Canada. It is a large area with little or no service people and I can usually tell on the phone if it can be fixed by the owner.

Education/Credentials
I took a 2 year apprentice course with a dealer who was looking to teach and hire. I worked for him for 8 years before moving up to the Northwest, Red Lake area of Ontario.
