    Miriam,

    Thank you for putting all the links together. You are my best agent.

    We've been slacking recently, we haven't made a video since early October. We do the filming in the kitchen, and I'm tempted to do a cookery video next, but I'm afraid I'll get flour on the lens.

    quiltingcurious - I'm curious now. I haven't got a Singer 301. Far too modern for me.

    And I'll say it again... what accent?

    Muv, that reminds me of a time when I was talking with someone from Mississippi and I commented on how much I loved her accent. She responded with, "Why, I was just thinking the same thing about YOURS!"
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Muv, I grew up in Wisconsin where nobody thinks they have an accent. They think the rest of the country has one though. We were living in Cincinnati, Ohio when we raised our children. One summer we went to Wisconsin for a family reunion. One of my cousins remarked to my son that he was surprised that my son didn't have a funny southern accent (probably because I taught him to talk with MY Wisconsin accent) So my son looks at my cousin and says in his best mimic of a Wisconsin accent, "OH, Yah sure!" (They say 'Oh' kind of with a huff of air at the end and NOBODY else in the country says 'Yah sure') Uh, I guess you have to know how it all sounds...

    As far as putting up links to your videos - they are very well done and it is a lot easier to put up links than to try to explain it all over and over. Thank you very much for doing them. Have you discovered Tri-flo? Yesterday we unstuck a very stuck Japanese 15 by simply dropping Triflo on each moving part. It was amazing.

    Now THAT is over my head. Send yourself an email with the address of the post I guess.

    Miriam - no I've never used tri-flow, but there again if a machine is stuck I don't buy it. There again, you never know what might come your way.

    My brother's mother in law, who died last year, was originally from Wisconsin. The different accents in that family were ridiculous, a different one for each generation - booming Wisconsin from a tiny little old lady, Home Counties girls' boarding school from her daughter, and South London sprawl (awful vowels) from the grandchildren. All that round one dinner table.

    If you want a bit more fun with accents, go to my Youtube channel and click on my favourites and find the video of Fashion 1938. The commentary is very dated, exceedingly posh, and the clothes are gorgeous.

    My dear SIL is from Wisconsin and my brother lives there now. He's starting to catch on with the O's. He also gives my SIL hell about removing the sound x makes from her vocabulary. Everything is a g-sound. She is super fun. My mom's family was Puerto Rican, so when we got together there was a mixture of American English (us midwestern kiddos) and Spanish accents. Then my uncle has lived in NYC since he was 12, so he has a new yorker accent on top of his thick spanish one. It's great to watch him get going!

    I absolutely love your videos. I've already learned so much. I have a Singer 66 and a 221. The 66 is really cleaned up good, but your videos make me wish it wasn't! I've viewed all of them. Your videos are really easy to understand so a beginner like me can follow along.
