After months of waiting, I finally got my hands on the missing rubber ring that’s needed for my bobbin winder to work. Gone are the months of having to, annoyingly slow, wind the bobbins on my old Janome machine. It took me 6 months of fiddling, but my wonderful Singer 20U-53 is now complete! I know this is a pure “sewing machine porn” post but I just can’t help myself. Don’t you just love it when you get more presser feet/needles/sewing machines/other gadgets to further fuel that hobby of yours? :)
For my Swedish readers, I can highly recommend Indukta. With very reasonable prices and great service, these are your go-to-guys when you need more needles or your sewing machine is acting up. So far they’ve managed to answer all my questions and get me all the spare parts I’ve needed.
And of course, here’s a link to their home page: http://www.indukta.se/

The needles I’m using are Schmetz 135×5 and I buy them from a swedish company called Indukta.
Their homepage is in swedish but you can always use google translate (for some interesting translations) and send them a mail to ask if they can ship to your address. If they don’t answer directly, it’s probably because they’re on vacation.
Good luck and happy sewing!
