    WOW makes me want to test drive them on my Japanese 15!!!!!!!!!
    I have a couple of those - it seems they each work differently too.

    Well fudge! The pics won't completely load so I can't see the goodies.

    Maybe, we should all down size our photos a little so everyone can see them? I got these ok, but I sometimes have the same problem Joe is having with the full sized photos!

    Because of my voice problem I don't do well in large groups due to the noise level. Cathy was sweet enough to give me a private tour of her wonderful collection. :>

    I invited her over to dinner. While Cathy worked on my National machine called The Eldredge that was missing a tension spring, I worked at getting the old wick out of the wick spring on my Singer 66. The conversation changed to the use of different darning springs and next thing Cathy is showing me all the different types she owns. She also showed off some exchange items, a pretty scrap quilt that Candace had made and a raven that Laura had made.

    That spring in the middle on the bottom row looks like what I ordered and am expecting to arrive by mail any day. Do you have any pics of that one on?
