Making ‘Make Do and Mend’ Fashionable

I have my moments of fighting the needle and thread, trying to mend some ripped clothes, but they always seem to get the better of me. Simply put, I HATE mending clothes and much rather replace them with new than pick an odd stitch. I know its wasteful, but unless someone makes it easy for me…simple as the Alto Sewing Machine, I ain’t fixing another ripped stitch!

As the designer explains, “to simplify threading, a metal guide runs from reel to needle for the user to follow. Speed is controlled by pressing with the fingers through the fabric and the patented force sensor technology in a rubber foot underneath the machine allows the beginner to control speed from whichever hand position they find most comfortable. A flexible drive shaft replaces the traditional pulley system to form Alto’s distinctive arch, increasing room for the fabric and improving visibility of the sewing area.”

Designer: Sarah Dickins

    So from all the above you can choose which one is best for you and your pocket.

    But prior to the availing of the insurance, you should check out
    the various aspects. You may choose to hire an insurance agent to help you sift
    through the colossal mound of details and technical wording to help select the most suitable kind of insurance to
    provide your business with adequate coverage.

  • In addition, if you do not agree with your NHS GP’s advice, you can obtain a second opinion on your medical condition. Most people would buy private health cover to supply themselves the reassurance that they will get prompt attention and treatment should they be hurt or become ill. Ashton: There are currently no pet insurers that cover pre-existing conditions, so in that way it is similar to human health insurance.

    I love this machine, I have been waiting years for someone to modernise the working of a sewing machine. Lots of people seem to want one. Crowd source the funds and patent and produce. Do it in U.K. where the big boys find it hard to steal your stuff and ideas.
