Bernie Tobisch on his new book, You and Your Sewing Machine.
Bernie shares his knowledge and experience gained as a

Bernie explains everything in detail so that you will

No matter what brand of machine you have, whether it is a new
machine or an older one, you will find all you need to keep your machine
performing at its best.
