Just treated myself to a W & G's machine this morning that I found at a local estate sale. Dated it to be made around 1883. Does anyone have any advice on what to use to clean and polish it so I don't ruin the existing finish? Some minor rust and grime on all the exposed metal needs to be worked on.
Anyone else not getting their newsletters? Haven't gotten anything for a few days now and not in junk mail either.

My mother in law passed away and left at lease 20 projects that need to be finished ( so now I am teaching myself to quilt and wishing I had sat at her feet for the last 30 years) and out of 40 boxes of material and patterns....I can't find it.

Is there anyway I can get the Quilt Sew Clever to work on the Pfaff grand quilter 1200?

I no longer am able to work, but still putter with quilting so I guess that is good.
As I am sure that others feel the same way...I am ready for spring and nice

This is another Bonnie Hunter design. I wanted to use up a lot scraps and I needed a king size quilt. The quilt measures 106x106. The problem was it won't fit on my 10 foot frame and my small machine. I decided to try grid quilting it and I am happy with how it turned out. Were there's a will there's a way. Thanks for looking.
Please Help Me, I'm looking for a "feather" design for a carpenter's star quilt. I seen one but I can't remember what site had it. Can anyone help me find this quilting design?
