    Thank you Trish, Candace was sweet enough to make me a copy of the manual, but some of the pages came out extremely dark - hard to make out the pictures/diagrams. I am going to play with my 319w this week. I know our problems will get resolved! All of my vintage and antique machines sew perfect stitches. Some of them took a little longer to attain those stitches then others when I was playing with them, but in the end they all came through. I know this 319w will too especially given that Candace had sewn a swatch using some of this machine's different stitches, and those stitches are perfect! I need things to settle down around here so I can try again with my "Candace."

    First all the hub bub of Thanksgiving and company, which was so much fun! Then yesterday one of my horses, who I have owned his entire life - all 29 1/2 years - died. Not a good day for my DH, the kids, the grandkids, (who all rode him), and especially me! That horse did it all, drill team, shows, parades, rodeo grand openings, barrel races, cut cattle, camping, jumped, pulled a cart, won buckles, blankets, horse coolers for me, won one of the largest horse shows in California - the Gold N Grand -, and mostly he was my trusted friend and companion his entire life - from the time he dropped on the ground from his Momma. He safely taught everyone of the kids, grandkids, and some in-laws and friends how to ride.

    Charlee, I really don't think the speed is a problem - you know it is hard to go too fast when you are treadling! It has to be something with either the needle, or the settings on the 'bight' control knob. I will drop this subject until I can try again - changing needles and different stitch settings! I will let you all know how it goes! Thank all of you for your help! I know, when I get this issue figured out, the 319w will be my 'go to' machine! My DH still doesn't get it with the treadling. He can't figure out why I'd rather treadle then use my electric Pfaffs, Janome's, Singers! Some people just don't get it!

    Does anyone have a 306? There is a 306 for sale here that looks very similar to the 319w, and I bet it is another one that could be dropped into a treadle without any adjustments to the machine!

    So sorry about your loss, Nancy:< I just can't imagine. The 306 is basically the same as the 319 BUT!!! It doesn't have the inner cams and lacks the ability to combine stitches to create a multitude of different patterns. You know how I showed you that you can put on a disc and also lift a couple of levers to combine stitches on the 319??? Well, the 306 can't do that. It takes the same 206 x 13 needles.

    So sorry to hear of your loss Nancy. When you have something in your life that "does it all", it certainly compounds the loss.

    Congrats Miriam! Early Christmas present. You'll have to get us all the details, weight name etc. How is the momma doing?
