If you do an internet search, Google or other, for "Tent Makers of Cairo" this may be what you are looking for. Good luck!
If it is a mechanical machine, it is most definitely a low shank. High shanked machine tend to be large computerized machines. When buying feet, you also want to look at the bobbin. If your bobbin loads from the front, you want a 5mm oscillating foot. If you bobbin loads from the top, you want a horizontal foot. Although in most feet the horizontal/oscillating difference doesn’t really affect anything, it can in some feet such as invisible zipper feet and 1/4 inch feet.
Wool batting is more expensive, but its worth the extra cost. Heirloom 80/20 is thick, but it pulls apart so easily. So if your quilt ever gets washed, that batting will disintegrate so much faster than a cotton or wool. Iíve been long arming for five years now and Iíve all but banned my customers from bringing in hobbs.You can tear holes in it just by looking at it! You always have the option of using two layers of warm and white, which I guess would be the same price as wool.
Iíve been repairing machine for years but this particular model is not commonly seen around my neck of the woods. There is someone in your town that might know a thing or two about that machine, a cobbler. Shoe repair guys often sew on these straight stitch only machine, and when you work on something so specific you have to know how to trouble shoot it. Hopefully you have a friendly one around your area, I hear baked good are always welcome
This is adorable calla. Is this your secret "other" talent. Altered art. I just love this medium.
Thank you, but the one I am looking for is applicaded on the block. Kinda like
a mound of desert across the bottom of a 15" block, and in the middle is a
cactus stem leaning with a red flower (print and solid) and a small barrel cactus on left side and a tall one on the right.
