    Another beauty, Glen.

    Candace, The curve on that Elna table is interesting. Mine is similar, but straight and there are no exposed hinges. It's held up very well for almost 40 years of hard work.

    such a sharp looking machine, I lean towards the matted look than the shinny machines. Truly unique looking, I'd try and repair the original finish. Can that be done? I like her. Think I have 2 with this type of finish, don't find them often.
    It isn't as slick as the glossy machines - wouldn't it be better to have slick for FM?

    You could put a silicone sheet on the bed. They are temporary.

    I think you had me with the first pic of the case! But then I saw the decals. :-D Wow.

    What is the spool pin "felt"? It looks like crochet or tatting, not just a felt disk.

    How about "Flower Girl"?

    CD in Oklahoma
    I like Flower Girl and I will consider it. Thanks
    Glenn
    She's a little old to be called 'flower child' but maybe she was ahead of her time..

    I have a question for Glenn.

    I know that you really like your 66, but I'm having a heck of a time getting used to her. The VSM shop insisted I buy a zig zag foot for the ideal 1/4 inch. I swear it's wrong. I can't keep a steady 1/4 inch seam and I don't know if I'll ever piece on her. Do you have any hints? I do not want to put tape or other adhesive on her. Scared it'll ruin her beautiful finish.

    The other question I have, how can you FMQ on a 66 if you can't drop the feed dogs? Is there a plate that goes over it? The guy I got the machine from insisted that you can just remove the feed dogs, but I'm worried that will cause damage to the machine if I don't put them back in right. What would you suggest?

    Thank you. I love looking at the pics of your newest acquisition. You've been such a supporter of the 66's I'd hate to see you start using a different machine. :)
