    Janice, I stocked up on the Boye #10's, when I purchased my Davis Vertical feed. I probably don't need any more, but I'd still like to know your source - just in case!

    Thanks Nancy...mine is the one that the Spousal Unit and I refinished...I posted about it on my blog... I still *really* need to sit down with the machine and work with it...was showing it to someone the other day and the top thread broke again, after about 15 inches...may not have been threaded right, but not being SURE, I want to play. Now to find time....
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Charlee, The felt is blue. The divider slips inside the drawer with attachment anchored to it. The number under the shuttle cover slide plate is 528. The number on the shuttle cover slide plate is 67488 last patiented May 12, 1885. I have most of the attachments. Does your irons have the decals still on them? Mine does just has to be cleaned.

    Yes, the 301 does GREAT FMQ. I've spent probably 4 or 5 hours over the last few days FMQ with it and I was very surprised. I knew it was a great piecing machine, but I have a new appreciation of why quilters love this machine so much. Guess what? I came home with another 301 this week. Of course it didn't work, and of course the seller said it did, as they ALWAYS do. You just have to assume it doesn't and refurbish it. The tension is in pieces being cleaned but I'll take pics later!

Size:  1.17 MBYoHOOOOOO! Here is my Singer 319w in her finished cabinet! "Candace" is so happy here in my sewing room! I haven't got the flip top completely done, still working on that part, but she is sitting in the cabinet ready to go! So easy to put a 319w in a treadle - she just dropped right in - no adjustments at all! Now I need to find time to play with her - she will be one of my favorite treadles I am sure!Name:  319 in cabinet wSinger wall hanging.JPG

    OMG that looks amazing, Nancy. You did a fabulous job restoring that cabinet and they look like they were meant for eachother! You'll have to post some pics of the projects you two make together. I'm amazed it treadles so easily. And love the machines name teeeheee:> One question, how do you reach the bobbin?
