    Anyone in the Baltimore area looking for a Davis VF? IF so, this may be one for just $29 in treadle.

    You're right on about that epoxy glue. My DH uses this for all kinds of things. And he fixed on of my FW socket parts with it and machine sews just fine.

    The top two cars with the most American parts and finished in America are the Toyota Camry and the honda Accord. Most of the GM and Ford vehicles are about 75% or less American made and Chrsyler is owned by an Italian company. My extended family works in the auto industry and it's a shame to see GM plants that cover a mile square closed because of out sourcing.

    On a SM, note: Can one external motor on a vintage e machine be subbed for another? I really don't see how anyone is going to able to get at the connectors on the cord of the Universal and there isn't enough good cord left to splice a new section. I so want to sew on that machine.

    Miriam, my children weighed from over 9 pounds down to 5 and a half pounds. They all grew up to be about the same size, though my shortest baby girl is now over 5'10".

    I always thought the external motors were the same. Although the external motor on my Singer 201 was for European usage; didn't work here when plugged in, but looked the same as any of my other motors.

    My daughter was always 99% in weight and height as a young kid. Doctor told us that she will most likely be very tall, 5'10"ish. She is only 5"2".

    I'd add that to my shopping list, Toyota or Honda made in USA but I'm partial to GM. The motors for Clones and aftermarkets for treadle machines are usually interchangeable. You can also open up your old motor and solder on a new length of cord which isn't difficult and rather useful if you tinker with old sm motors on occasion. If you need the motor to match the color of the machine (unless black) you should go the soldering route.

    My kids were all close together, in age as well as weight and length. My 3 are all only 2 ounces apart. My earliest baby was premature and he was my heaviest. I think he would have been a ginormous baby if he went to term. He was 7 pounds, 2 ounces 19 1/2 inches long. My smallest baby was 6 pounds 14 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. He was born on his due date. The baby came in the middle at 7 pounds even. But he was 22 1/2 inches long! He looked like string bean! He got really sick when he was a week old. He lost 3 pounds, almost half of his birth weight. When we were at the PICU and he started to get better, we had to keep him in the hospital until he got up to 5 pounds. He wore preemie clothes then and everything. He didn't wear newborn clothes until he was almost 3 months old. Healthy as an ox now. Short for his age, but everything else is fine.

    I can find batting made in America from cotton to recycled plastic bottles, but fabrics aren't.
    This batting made from recycled bottles looks interesting.

    Has anyone tried this in their quilting? IF so, how well does it quilt?
