    I use OOOO steel wool and sewing machine oil, real easy on the decal parts to remove paint splatters.
    If this doesn't cut it I'd try non pumice gogo with soft cloth or 0000 wool. Gogo is harsher on the decals than the SM oil

    I'll give it a try.
    thanks again,

    I have an Elna that came covered in green latex paint. I used my fingernail and picked it off.

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

    I have a Ruffler attachment, back clamp for a 66-1 in very good condition if anyone needs one. PM me, and maybe we can trade for something I need.

    heehee I thought the same. What if it were used for mini quilts or larger wall quilts?

    Miriam, glad to hear of your new grandbaby, and that he's hale and healthy!! I expected a tiny little guy, but he's a perfect size--nice and compact for hauling around!! Have fun with him!!
    Well Sammy didn't quite make 30, but close. He was a lot more than a horse to me, but it was his time. I know that, but that doesn't make it any easier. Thank you all.

    I have been busy sewing. I am using my 319w now a lot. I made a small wall hanging for my daughter; and, now I am making my daughter and daughter-in-law new Christmas placemats. We are tired of the old ones I made a few years ago! I am in love with the 319w! But man, I have a healthy appreciation for the ladies that treadled all day long - my legs ache! I thought I was in pretty good shape too! My DH thinks it is funny!

    Here is a gem - anyone guess the age? http://sacramento.craigslist.org/clt/2729438802.html
