Working on another 930

You know..
I really like these machines!

There were two versions of the 930 made.

One had the needle up/down feature.
\They both share 99% of the same mechanical characteristics.

Same Hook

Same Gearing

The biggest difference is this is the first model where they moved the thread cutter off the presser foot lever.

I came up with this idea for a sort of insane pair of shorts...
Seen from the front, they are a pair of denim culotte-ish things trimmed in a black ruflle.

But in the back, I cut the denim away just at the to of my butt.
Now, they would work great like that for some sort of ... no

The plan is to fill that space with ruffled satin!
We'll see if it comes out as cool as it is in my head.

i just tried to repair a pair of somewhat crappy boots.
the zipper down the side was broken, so I thought:
"Hey! I'll just rip it out and put in a new one!"

Yeah, no.
that really didn't go so well.

So, they are headed to the trash bin.

Lesson learned from this?
Research before you assume that because you can sew you can repair anything.
and don't waste 2 hours and a zipper trying to repair a 20$ pair of payless boots.
