    It's a learning curve to go back to basics!

    I have been using a Brother 6000 for about 1.5 years now without the foot pedal. I got real used to pushing that button!

    I am learning (again!) on my new-to-me 1936 Miss MAM and just stitched her up a cover to try FMQ on her. It's pretty obvious that I need more practice at the FMQ and I did a lot of ripping because of rat's nests underneath.

    I just grabbed some scraps and had a fun couple of days between tension issues and trying to remember that most things don't work without the presser foot down. I joked to DH that I need a BIG sign saying PRESSER FOOT DOWN! LOL

    And for the Teddi lovers out there - a spot got freed up on the bottom shelf, I moved her bed when I vacuumed and she seems to have no problem with it's new position.

    oh, your cat looks so much like mine. he likes to sleep in an old wooden file cabinet drawer. I was going to toss the drawer in the trash, but decided to let him keep it.

    Old GF's Mom used to call her that when she was in trouble and the seller's wife has the initials MAM. She arrived with a broken handwheel and the seller sent his wife's handwheel to me.

    The 2nd one I have is getting named Miss MIM provided I find a foot pedl and get her going.
