Good Books To Own / Custom tailor's method
« Last post by posaune on June 13, 2019, 11:52:04 PM »
I can across today to a series of wonderful videos. Vitale Barberis Canonico (Italian wool mill) did 12 episodes  titled Tailor tips.

t is so nice to see.
I'll download  them all and will look when I have enough time. In my eyes outstanding.
(Par example in # 11 there is shown the dressing of a trousers.)

Hendrick, my machine is the double needle model, but unfortunately I didn't get the holder that you mention.

Is this what you remember?

Hi! These machines were often sold as "shop machines" but also for industrial use. So I guess they went different "accessories kits". When I was much much younger there was a fashion of taping and binding clothing (often heavy double weaves!) with suedine, artificial leather etc. And that is exactly what my dad used these for; especially beautiful with double needle top stiching…  Anyhow, I remember the big conical feeders (I guess almost 4 inches long) that were used for that purpose and specifically on that machine. I may have a photo somewhere.  This was actually the only "heavy"machine I would ever touch because the zigzag function was similar to te 130 I owned, very precise and perfect to bartack jeans with…

Cheers, Hendrick

Hi Hendrick,

Can you say anymore about what to look for about the binding foot with the slightly longer inlet?

I have the original instruction booklet maybe I can figure out what that is?

Congrats on the purchase, sounds like much fun to be had!

As addictions go, this one isn't actually life threatening....so why not! ;)

And everyone NEEDS a good road trip now and again.

The way the fronts are pushed forward. Wonder if it is a four button coat.

Greger, why do you think this is a crooked cut?
