    When you repaint, will you stick with black and maybe decal it or will you go with a color?
    Great job, Jan, and I am excited to see what you do to that machine. I love the work you have done with the wood top.

I had to put my 15-91 away to be able to use my 201 and I love them both. What's a girl to do?
    I know your feeling...so wanting another room with better natural light. I told you that you would love sewing with the 201s. They run so smooth and make beautiful stitches. Enjoy!

    I did it again. This was was calling for HELP! Rescue me! The poor child was screaming help me!
    This machine was purchased as a restoration project that never got done.
    Someone started to clean the machine and silvered some of the decals, oh well...what is done is done.

    This isn't the worst cabinet that I have picked up, but this will be the worst one that I restore. I have the other drawer pulls in one of the drawers.
    I have NO idea where I'm going to put this machine...but I'm looking forward to cleaning her up.

    Crocheted Spool Pin Covers

    Am not Glenn but found the pattern. I hope this helps.

    Use steel crochet hook #7 and of course crochet thread.

    Chain 10, slip stitch in last chain to make the circle.
    Round 1-Chain three double crochet twice(first double crochet cluster) chain three, double crochet three times,chain three repeat five times. you will have have six double crohet clusters with chain three between each one.
    Round 2-slip stitch to the middle double crochet, chain six,slip stich in the center of next cluster repeat aroung bind off.
    If you have any question just ask.
    Glenn.

    Really like the looks of this machine and table!

    It is very simple and clean (streamlined) looking! Would fit in well with the way I decorate...as if that matters when it comes to vintage machines!! LOL

    Glad you guys found the intructions to my spool pin covers this was my own design and was fun to make. I use them on all my machines. I was looking thru my crochet patterns and realized the the center of many of these doilies can be used as spool pin covers. I am going to try some so not all machines will have the same cover. Glad you guys like them it seems to add the extra touch to these old ladies.
