How to fix a vintage sewing machine?
It’s a simple but crucial task.
Viking sewing machines are a classic example of a machine that has been out of fashion for many decades.
But for those who want to repair or restore them, there’s a number of ways to do it.
The Viking sewing machine repair process, or the process of replacing parts that don’t work, is well-known.
But the process is also known for being a lot less straightforward than the other repair methods we covered earlier in this series.
We spoke to expert Anna-Christine Mollick, who has been repairing and restoring sewing machines for more than 50 years.

You can find out more about how to swap blades and how to do this on our tutorial: Swapping a vintage cutting board and sewing machine blade A Viking sewing patterning machine is the main piece of the repair process.
Here’s how to find out which blade is missing from a vintage Viking sewing patterns machine and fix it: Using your sewing machine tool, cut a hole in the backside of the machine and insert the sewing pattern card, the pattern card that contains the stitch patterns.
Attach the machine blade to the back of the patterning card.
To the left of the back side of the sewing machine is a patterning material.
Take the sewing board and cut a length of thread, about 1mm.
Put the thread through the hole in front of the blade, and into the sewing thread.
You’ll want to cut a 1mm hole in this area.
Once you’ve made the hole, sew the pattern piece inside of the hole you just made.
Then take the sewing piece that’s already inside the hole and attach it to the front of your sewing board.
Now sew the front end of the thread to the sewing card that was inside the opening you made.
Then place the back end of your thread on top of the front part of the board.
The thread should hang in place.
Repeat this process with the other side of your pattern card and the sewing threads.
You should have something that looks like this: Now that you’ve finished this process, you can get back to the machine.
When it’s time to repair a vintage needle, you’ll need to replace the needles, blades, and other parts of the vintage machine that haven’t worked.
For this, you need a needle and thread scraper.
A vintage sewing needle, the tip of which is not sharp, can be tricky to clean and replace.
There are many types of vintage needle scraper that you can find, from basic wooden ones to antique wood scraper blades.
Here’s how you can use one of them to repair your needle: Take a needle that has not been used for sewing and cut it in half.
If you’re using a small needle, cut it a bit longer to make it wider.
Take a small knife, cut through the bottom of the needle.
Using a ruler, cut the inside of each half of the end of each needle, with the knife side down.
Use your needle scrapper to scrape out the excess thread, as shown.
Remove the thread from the top of each end of a needle, and discard the thread.
Cut out a section of thread to glue it into the back and front of a sewing machine.
This is where you’ll find the old blade and thread, and the needle that came with it.
You can attach this thread to a new blade, too, using a thread scrapper.
Start by cutting a small hole in your sewing pattern.
Cut a small section of wood to hold the old needle and blade.
Attach a scrap of the wood to the old thread scrapping section.
Now glue the old threads to the threads that you cut out earlier.
This is where the repair will start.
As you glue the new thread to each thread scraping section, take a large, flat screwdriver and push it in.
Hold the new threads firmly, and pull the threads out.
Gently pull the old blades out of the new wood, and replace them with the new ones.
Insert the old scraper blade and screwdriver into the hole created by the new blades.
This should give you the new blade and threads that came from the scrap you just removed.
If you need more help with the process, the machine manufacturer will send a letter with instructions on how to repair the machine, and a repair manual.
We recommend repairing your sewing machines yourself, if possible.
