Viking Turissa 2840

I wonder about me sometimes. Do you ever do that? I have had this machine for quite awhile. I’ve had it long enough I don’t remember when or where I got it. As I have been pulling machines out of my collection to donate, I came across this one, and I couldn’t remember if it worked or not. It did not have my sample paper towel fabric of tested stitches with it. I kept thinking that it must have needed something.

I am on vacation this week, but I still woke up at 4:30. I don't know smile My alarm clock has gone off at 4:30 am for so many years that I probably don’t even need it anymore, but my internal clock also doesn’t know I don’t have to go to work today! I made a pot of coffee, took some laundry downstairs to work on, and plugged this baby in.

All the stitches work, although I really needed the instructions, or I might have never figured them out.

I guess I must have set Turissa aside, because there is not extension bed with her, and I might have been planning on trying to find one, then never did, but one is not necessary.

North it will go!

Cute machine! I always wake up early too, even if I don't set the alarm. Drives me crazy sometimes. :)

Have a wonderful and Blessed day

Janet, Click the 'email me' button on the sidebar, and provide an email address, and maybe I will be able to help you. You are a no-reply blogger, so I cannot reply to your comment.

Michelle, I did figure out how to set the straight stitch..... I have lots of old machines and it is always a challenge to figure out the quirks of all the models. I just bought this one...tell me how you like yours..

Janet, I was going to offer you a pdf of the manual, but you need to EMAIL me. Everything you ask me can not be answered, because I have no way to reply!
