    The old thread was getting rather cumbersome so we have been asked to start a new thread.

    This thread continues on from the original thread here

    I am so busy with alterations but I plan to ear mark a set time at the end of the day to create. I have to put new things into the shop, as the makes I have are all from before the shop was opened.Time flies and the shop has been open now for two years ( well by next Monday). The last year of my current lease. So I have until April to decide if I want to stay and negotiate a new lease, or relocate.
    So everything counts now and any tweeking of procedures and looking for ways to be more profitable
    Making thermal cooking bags, too help others save fuel costs, and produce fabulous meals for pennies! I love my sewing, and it has helped me to make new friends and feel useful!

    Your covers look lovely, but what I do know thanks to a friend of mine, I put two cushion innards inside to give a nice bulky solid feel to the cushions. Providing of course, you have put in zips.

    c4 error on singer sewing machine
    Whilst using my machine it suddenly stopped, motor made a strange noise. I noticed the lever seemed to be jammed against the casing. I unscrewed the casing cleared some thread that was wrapped around near the lever. Everything else seemed to be clear but the machine is still not working just making a whirring sound and displaying a c4 fault. I checked to see if the bobbin winder worked but no luck. Has anyone else had problems like this? The nearest repairer is 30 miles away and if it is going to be a costly job I may be better putting the money towards a new machine. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem. If it means a new machine I would appreciate some recommendations for a reliable mid price machine, Thank you
