    Thank you, Kathie
    Kathie, there is probably oil in the treadle grove. Take a towel or rag and wipe the grove the belt sits in and wipe the belt really good. It should stop slipping.

    I walked out to the studio today to look around and get my game plan going and sat on the loveseat for an hour or so with Dixie. It took all I had to go out there and do that. I was just worn out doing something simple like that. I never get sick hardly and when I do I just keep on going but this time it has handed me my lunch big time!!

    Try the Vicks. It works! At least it worked for me along with the chicken soup.

    Thank you so much! I sure wish someone had warned me about the addictive qualities of vintage sewing machines before I let my husband talk me into my singer 19-51. I went to the thrift store looking for a table for that one -- and saw this poor baby sitting on the floor buried in shower curtain rods, I had to bring her home!

    Now I need a cabinet for my Singer -- and possibly a treadle for this Necchi?!!
    Shnnn, it is my understanding that the Necchi will fit in the same cabinet as a Singer. So you might be able to get 1 cabinet and switch the heads out. I would love to see pictures of your Necchi and 19-51 Singer.

    Thank you Chris for the lead on the Yahoo group. I am going to work on her this weekend along with my White Rotary (which also needs a new belt).

    Billy - I hate being sick especially when I have things to do, places to go and people to see. I usually do to much to soon and pay for it later. Take care of yourself, everything will still be there tomorrow.

    Congratulations Elsie on putting the 319 back together!

    Monica, I am glad you are feeling better and the Vicks worked.

    Billy, you may not feel it, but you are getting better too or you wouldn't be up and about. It will take time to get your strength back.

    Congratulations Kathie on that treadle cabinet you just got back from the re-finisher guy. It looks fantastic - do you want me to post pictures for you?

    Unfortunately this has turned into a bronchitis type of thing, I still have the steroids I am taking and the antibiotics but my neighbor told me she would prescribe me a cough syrup with codine for my hacking. I was instructed that this could easily turn into something worse if I didnt take my time resting but that is driving me nuts!
