    I think she's very pretty. I like the zebra print to give her the wild side.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    You did a great job on her. That is a really good idea to put craft foam on the bottom. Sometimes those heavy portables can really vibrate.

    Nice find. You did a great job cleaning her up. She sure looks purty. And the zebra print seams to suit her. enjoy.

    I have seen the black stuff before, it is most likely bits of rubber from the belt which is beginning to degrade of was too tight. Did you repaint the case or what?

    I like what you did with Rizzo. Great find and job on cleaning her up. I have seen the black stuff before also and agree with Pat that it is probably from the belt. Enjoy her.

    Bennett, could you elaborate on how you cleaned this machine? What drastic measures did you have to go to on it?
