  2. Thank you so much! An absolute joy of a machine inherited from a lovely lady called Greta. I will be able to machine happily now. Greta lost the handbook along time ago. The sewing bug can now carry on.

  3. Just acquired a 507 without handbook. Wish I could get one. This was so helpful as I am giving this machine to my Thai daughter in law. If you could supply a handbook this would be great. Angie

  4. I need a good writer services.
    Have anybody used this one before? I am not sure about those guys. Can anybody advice any reliable one?
    I am going to order a few academic paper works.

  5. Thank you so much for these great step-by-step pictures! I’m using an old-school Singer Touch and Sew and the manual assumes you pretty much know what to do. This helped me very much.

  6. Thank you so much pictures really helped. Left my 507 by great aunt no one else in my family sews.
    Attempting to make a petticoat. Here’s hoping.

  8. This is a brilliant tutorial with lovely pics. Thankyou
    Could you tell me if this machine has a switch to drop the feed dogs please?
    I recently purchased this at a vintage market and it appears that the feed dogs are down
    Cheers

  9. The feed dogs don’t drop, but the presser foot pressure can be reduced to ‘D’ for darning, so that fabric can be moved in any direction, according to the manual, although not sure if this would work for quilts with wadding.
