    Cathy, Monica, Kathie, and Miriam I loved reading about the good 'ole' days of youth. I spent all my time on a horse or pretending to be a horse! I was not home schooled, but have some great memories of riding the bus into town to go to school, as we lived on a working cattle ranch!

    Lee, very nice 99! Those 99s are great little work horses.

    It a package of what looks like edible oatmeal that you dissolve in warm bath water. If it gets worse - Medrol pack from your doc.
    I'm allergic too and both kids. We used to get it from our golden retriever when she would go over the hill and then come home and swish that big tail on our legs. Took us a while to figure out how we were getting it and hadn't been in the weeds!!
    Hope ya dry up soon!
    Cindy, did you ever get the 15 clone you wanted?

    Hey Suzi!! Sew-Classic or April1930s has feet for the 301s. They are slant shank, so be sure you order the right ones. There are several available....FMQ/darning, cording/zipper, ruffler, hemmer, etc.

    evaporust... that sounds useful! is that something I would be likely to find at an autoparts or hardware store - or need to order?

    never mind -- found the web site -- :) the parts store in town is a distributor

    Couple of questions: no responses to my questions about the "bloom" on the finish of my 301: any ideas?
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-43881-1366.htm#3782249

    Also: my DH is wanting to pull the motor off the 15-91 which seems to work fine and clear out all the "gunk". While he is kinda mechanical I am leaning to adding grease and oil and letting it alone before pulling the pot off. What do you all think?

    And finally, my book for the 15-91 says to put 1/2 a tube of Singer motor grease in the holes. How much grease does that come to in today's terms and who sells the proper grease?

    thanks a lot I know someone will have the answers! :lol:
