Mylar Sheets for Brother 950i

Posted on

Can anyone help?

Thank you.
Jean

You can use Silver Reed Mylar sheets which are still available on a Brother machine with a few adjustments such as the starting line. If you compare an old Brother sheet with a Silver Reed one you will see what needs doing.

I know your query was some while ago but I got a new and a used sheet from Heathercraft. Ordered yesterday delivered today. Fantastic service…

Hi

If you mean intarsia patterns (picture knitting) then Jo Newton has a great selection. She’ll even work on special requests if you need something a bit out of the ordinary. Try her website at www.jonewton.co.uk or e-mail her at jo.newton@btinternet.com

Help setting up Toyota in Lincoln

Posted on

I have aquired an old (new condition) knitting machine. It is a Toyota Elena7 without instructions. Is there anyone in Lincoln who could help me set it up & use please. Or any Knitting Machine Lessons available. Thank You

Thank You Cassie but need help in Lincoln. Had a couple of machines years ago but don’t know how to set this one up. If I did I could manage to work it from other books/video. No instructions at all you see. Pleased you found a group I used to go to one in Lincoln. No Knitting Machine Shops at all now.

Thanks again – Sylvia

I have just taken the plunge and after having aquired an old Brother KH710 which has been under the bed for about eleven years I desperately wanted to find help in the area. Imagine my surprise when I found a group of people in Donington Lincolnshire. It’s just up the road for me and I went along for the first time last Thursday with my machine and I received such wonderful help. This is the web site of where they meet :~

Hope it is of some help if you don’t find anything nearer.

machine jamming

Posted on

The test square etc is fine as it doesn’t use the needles 70-75 on the right.
Can anyone help?
I live in the Braintree area of Essex and would like to join a club if one exists.

Dear judy
Have you tried taking the needles out also checking to see if the underside of the carriage has been oiled also check to see if the needles are not bent.

If it has not been used for some time also see if the bed is not bent.

Have you checked the needle retaining bar. It should have 1/4 inch of sponge on it. If this is OK check that you have not got a load of fluff stuck in the channel where the retaining bar is housed.

Charity shop donation

Posted on

I have not yet checked it over but it looks clean and in good condition. The Manager of the shop would appreciate some advice about how much we should charge for it when we put it in the shop for sale.

You could try Andeeknits I know she deals with some of the charity shops with machine if your in her area. www.andeeknits.co.uk
