    Thank you. That is interesting. I have another similar looking machine but with different paint job (black) and so I'm guessing that both are White clones. Who knew? Thanks again for the information. They both thread similar to a Singer 66.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I must have missed that tute. Great idea, think I'll make a few for my DH, it will save hot fingers when he nukes stuff.
    Thanks! I'm going to make some as Christmas presents this year. I will pick out fabrics that are favorite themes for each of the family members.

    I also have that book. I got it after I saw it at the Northern California TOGA in September. It's wonderful!! Clear pictures and instructions. I haven't used all my attachments yet, but when I get a break (whenever that is!) I plan on trying them all out.

    I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

    Anyone looking for a gorgeous treadle? Fantastic oak treadle case with a decent appearing New Home machine listed on Western Mass craigslist in Amherst. Sorry- don't know how to post link. I think it was about $150.

    OK, I'm not sure how to use the board now - so can anyone tell me how Billy is or if he has a blog - how do I get to it? I haven't seen him post in several days.
