Looked on the ismacs website and got a phone number to call for information on White's. I called and talked to "Reba" - she told me my machine was made in 1929 in Cincinnati, Ohio - the number on the machine (under the motor) is the model and serial number. Model Number 1X, serial number 1q357.
Still looking for more information and parts.

A perfect sewing day for me, starting early with my coffee and staying in my jammies til the mood hits me to get dressed. If it does. No laundry, no cooking, no
My husband and I spent yesterday in a class learning how to do maintenance on my Gammill. It was a long day, but I feel like we learned a lot and I know that I am not as afraid of the machine as I was before.
However ... I loaded a quilt on the machine today and could not get the darn thing to work in regulated mode. It worked great in manual (I'm not very good at keeping stitches even so I don't usually use this - will definitely need to practice). I was SICK!
I am in LOVE! My new Bernina 380 (purchased in August)caught my eye with his sleek presence -- what woman can resist a well dressed machine? Like Sean Connery in a tux so many years ago...
Eye candy got my attention, then WOW I saw this machine in action! First demonstrated by a severely physically and developmentally challenged man at the local quilt shop, I have been intrigued by the possibilities that the free hand system allows. He then proceeded to show me that his stitches

I recently took a quilting class for a victorian table runner, but we did not get far enough to learn how to bind the darn thing. It has curves and inside angles.
I'm assuming it needs to be bound with bias binding, but I do not understand the tutorials I've found online on how to make bias binding.

First, I want to thank my husband for spending his day off learning how to maintain my longarm machine. We took a class with Ron Paul and he taught us so many things. I am anxious to use my machine to see if the adjustments we made helped with any issues I may or may not have known I was having - lol
But, one thing I know for sure, it is all clean, oiled and the settings are just perfect - now to load a quilt and take it for a spin.
There are several things on my wish
I just learned that one of my friends that I met here on the QB passed away on Thursday. Those of you who knew or corresponded with Jeanniebelle will miss her, as do I.
Jeannie had a very generous heart, and she was always making delightful items for her friends. She attended several of my quilting classes, always making at least two of whatever the project was, and doing a great job of it.
One of her quilts was a giant one that she made for her husband Joel. It
