I have a Singer Fashion Mate 237M-A from 1968. It has straight and zig-zag stiches. the bottom bobbin is a class 15 that goes in vertically (not top load).
I would like to sew double stich seems withouth actually sewing 2 seems, So I would like to use a double needle. Has anyone tried this with a Fashionmate 237 ? One sewing machine store told me any machine that can zig zag can use a double needle BUT a machine repair man said the fashion mate 237 can NOT use double needle because the boobin goes in vertically and sideways and only top load bobbins or vertical front faceing bobbins can use double needles ?
any one try it with a singer fashion mate ?

I'm sorry, but the repair man was right. You can't use a double needle on a 237, for exactly the reason he gave you. In spite of that, a 237 is still a really great machine (speaking as a Luddite who just can't quite warm up to computerized machines).
