My thrift shop finds for the week - A Pink Brother 220 Super Streamliner sewing machine, with matching pink shoes! I'll look so stylish while sewing. I suppose I need to sew up a pink polka dotted dress to complete the ensemble.
This machine clearly hadn't been run for quite some time. It had minimal lint, but needed a lot of SMO (sewing machine oil). I got it up and running, but the motor is sparking a little. My husband got involved, and took the motor apart, but didn't resolve the problem. From reading online, the sparks may go away after running the machine for a while, or they might not. I could replace the motor with another one. I'm sure I could find one in my machine collection, but....it wouldn't be pink. What would you do? Please leave a comment below.
Have a wonderful day!
