    Oh, I would LOVE to have that cabinet for sure. I'm coming to the TOGA, but I'm sure it'll be gone by then.

    I'm in the mood to go shopping....across the nation.

    And if this were really true that I were extremely wealthy...first stop would be dropping off a National Two Spools and a Davis NVF to Sharon, Purplefiend. Then afterwards would be the rest of the gang here. It would be Christmas in September...I love to shop for others!

    Monica,
    OOH!!! A Two Spool and a Davis NVF for me?? :shock: Hurry up and win the lottery already. :lol:
    Hugs,
    Sharon

    I love that you make all those scrappy quilts for donations!!

    I picture many children wrapped around your work of love, a scrappy quilt, with a smile on their face.

    <<<Hugs back>>>

    :)

    Okay all just wanted to report back that it is all operator learning on my treadle. After a week of sewing a little every day I am doing much better. I think it was all a bit of foot placement on the pedal and the stiff new belt that was slipping.

    I don't break the thread that much anymore but it is usually when I am slowing down and then start up again. I hope to post some pictures tonight but have a virus again on my computer I think.

    Thanks for the sweets.

    Do you think we will have room in the car? Silly me - I'm having 2nd thoughts and am thinking of finding a cabinet for the machine from yours.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a TOGA in my area? I am pretty much in the center of Missouri.

    Well, I went and did it!!! Bought a Singer machine from and old feller--it was his wife's and before that his mother-in-law's. It is nice condition and came with a buttonholer, and boxes of stuff. But I didn't see a manual. It runs great and seems clean.
    The Model is a 348, No. 81583-900 and made in Great Britean, AIN. Where can I find a manual for it? I did a search on this sight for info, but couldn't see anything about manuals. Will put up pictures when We have settled it in a spot. Came with at least 4 or 5 prs. of scissors, and two boxes of notions that I have not had a chance to look through! It's aqua and doesn't seem to have much wear.
