    My wife is currently teaching me how to sew. It’s one of the new skills to learn this winter  We purchased a used Thompson light commercial model pw  301 and are both learning how to use it.  Not much help on YouTube. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    You didn’t mention if you have the machine’s instruction manual. So I went on a search and found this: https://www.sew4less.com/product/9609/Thompson_PW_301_Instruction_Manual_and_parts_list

    I keep a bucket with sewing supplies in it and just keep adding to it when ever I have a few cents to spare. I couldn’t believe how much it cost to get a non power driven machine (that is the foot peddle variety) so its just going to be by hand as usual. When did home ec get such a bad name! I can’t believe how many kids can’t cook or wash these days. I’ve had to wash on a wash board its no fun and sewing get a bit harder when your hands don’t work so well any more.
