    Miz Johnny you really need to try the 319. It is wonderful in a treadle and can do so much. As soon as I can find more flat cams I am going to use it to decorate a crazy quilt.

    I am no longer getting email notices that there are replies. That makes it hard to figure out where to start reading. Anyone else know what to do about that??

When I click I was sent back to page 2269. Then I couldn't change the page. Weird or what? I closed the page and went back to e-mail and tried again. Right to the last page. Hope it was a one time thing, just starting to figure the new QB out.

    Singer Model 12 Top

    I'll jump off the bridge and show my "hopeful" restoration of my Singer fiddlebase cabinet top. Glenn has been helping me along with it. In the beginning it has no finish, so I had to start at the filthy wood and work my way back. I love the oil stain on it that shows where a big round blade has been laid on it and left its greasy outline. Such stories this old girl could tell.

    First picture is as she was found, then glueing her back together, before lots and lots of cleaning with denatured alcohol and finally sanded and ready for staining(when my ordered stain arrives).

    Yes, indeed. It is hard to believe that is the same table. When is the stain coming? Have you posted pics of the machine yet?

    Wow, Jan that is very inspiring!! So happy to see that base in good condition again. Can't wait to see it complete!! Good going.

    BTW Glenn, I forwarded your information to DH, and he called to tell me he was at the hardware store to get stuff to work on my cabinet. So, we may have pics to put up by tomorrow!!

    The irons I recently got for my Davis VF are Decorah-Posten, and when I Googled it, I found out that Decorah-Posten was a Norwegian immigrant established newspaper in Minnesota in the 1880s. To boost subscriptions, he had a sewing machine manufacturer badge some machines, and an iron maker make the irons with Decorah-Posten name. Subscribers could buy the treadle machines for $2 down and $1 a month for a total of $26. Intriguing, no???

    Glenn, I too have made some of the spool pin covers. I gave some away the other day and she liked them.

    That's interesting history. Thanks for sharing!
