Sewing Machine Upset

I started sewing again today!  I put my 66 Redeye Singer hand crank sewing machine in an old sewing machine cabinet when I first got it.  We went to the store and I came home to this.  Somehow one of the cats must have off balanced the cabinet and knocked it over!
 The machine landed on a coaster on my table which prevented any dents on my table.
 My blocks were still attached though!
This happened the night before my surgery also, but that time the machine had been thrown across the floor.  I praise the Lord none of my cats were hurt!  The only thing I had to do was fix the tension a little.  A plastic machine would have been broken.  Maybe I fixed the off balance problem though.
In case you are worried, my husband picked up the machine and cleaned up the mess for me.  I'm feeling a little better every day.  I even made cookies, although my husband did have to finish baking them for me.

For those of you who have never picked up a vintage machine, they are made of cast iron and very heavy!!

Have a great day ya'll!

Now to find the culprit. Which one of the little furry fatties is using your machine as a launch pad? LOL Glad nothing was hurt including the machine.

Glad the machine didn't break. My Spartan got dumped over in the back of my car, and jammed up. I thought it was just jammed with lint, but, I had to take it to a TOGA and the Capt, Bill H, and another onion all worked on the tension until it finally started stitching again.

So very glad it's still usable!

I had the same problem years ago but it was my granddaughter that leaned on the part that opens up and the machine went over. Being a Pfaff it survived since it's pretty tough but the table has never folded up the same. I now keep a three drawer bin under it so if it starts to go, it has something to rest on. The new (old) table I got for my granddaughter's sewing lessons will need to have the same set up. She is 10 now and wants to learn so I have one of my church rummage sale machines set up in the table for her. Hopefully she will like it.

So glad no one got hurt. I have a vintage singer with a cabinet that I inherited. It's super heavy.
