More on Traveling With Your Chainer

Back in May of 2013, I talked about how my W&G hand-crank made a nice laptop sewing-machine. Along those same lines, Carla M. from California wanted to find a machine she could use while flying/busing on a long trip coming up soon. She settled on a darling little toy Singer chainer, the Singer 20. She just sent me a photo of her giving it a test run while on a bus trip. Wonderful!!! Have chainer, will travel...and sew!!

Here is Carlas message to me this morning and a photo of her setup...

Welp...  Here is the test run on a bus trip to PIQF... Worked like a charm!  I have a cutting board I clipped it to so I wasn't rockin' the seat in front of me.  A clipboard was not heavy enough to sit in my lap.  Non-slip pad on my lap so the board doesn't slip around.  I'll be making Bonnie Hunter's Maverick Stars.  They are all packed up and ready to go!  We leave in three weeks.

 Isn't that just the sweetest setup!!


  1. Hello! I'm so very new to all this blogging thing. Thank you for your demos on how to use all these gadgets for my sewing machines. I saw that you have a two spool and some good knowledge about how they work (I hoping). I finally have one but it will not rotate all the way around and I thnk it's because someone added the wrong hook to it. It seems to have been forced to turn this was and now the the wheel will continue to turn with out moving the 'bobbin' until you turn it the other way. I've never seen one and have no idea what It should look like. Any help would be so very well and appreciated.

    Thank you!

    1. Two things come to mind. Either the spool can is not set into the hook area correctly, or it is the wrong spool can. Not all Two Spool machines use the same style of spool can. Start there.
