    Thanks. I thought I broke the machine when I couldn’t get the feed dogs back up. I’ve watched a couple of your videos, thanks for taking the time.

    Thank you for making this video! I recently inherited the exact same kind of sewing machine from my mother, and this was driving me crazy!

    This was exactly what I was looking for. Great job!

    Thanks! I thought I was going to have to spend hours sewing by hand until the machine got fixed. Thanks again

    Your machine is really a Janome. They stitch better with organ or Janome needles. Organ makes the Janome needles. You will be surprised at the difference.

    Thank you SO much for helping me solve the Feed Dogs problem! Your helpful tutorial showed me where to look even on my much older Kenmore machine. Thanks again for saving this Grandma from an expensive trip to the repair shop. Bless you for taking the time to teach me something I needed to know!

    Gotta say, I’ve been sewing since the 70’s and you taught me something new today. I never knew how to lower the feed dogs. LOL mind blown. I can finally try my hand at freeform machine quilting. How did we ever survive before YouTube? Thank you! 😀

    Thank you , I was completely flummoxed, paging through the manual, because my feed dogs got lowered at some point and I didn’t even know what they were called let alone how to adjust them.
