    I'm hoping to get some time in on my 319 again - I'm having trouble getting the needle bar clamp back together. Any suggestions?

    LOL! You are bringing back good memories for me! Glenn are you quoting the movie "HOOK?" One of our granddaughters loved that movie. One week she had to watch it after school every day while we sat on the floor with her in my lap! Wasn't it the grandfather who was always looking for his lost marbles?

    Melinda, my heart goes out to you, your family, and your mother! We will keep her in our prayers, but remember the best thing you can do for her is keep a very positive attitude!

I'm making double Friendship stars with either a 3" friendship star or a 9 patch in the center square.

    Sharon, we'd love to see the friendship stars! Congratulations on your new treadle iron!

    As far as the generic or vintage foot. I know it's not a vintage foot since it looks just like the one for my modern Janome. It doesn't look anything like the penguin or any of the older attachments I've seen. I've quilted 3 others on the same system with no problems. I kept the box the foot came in. It doesn't say much. It's a plain white box that says Walking Foot in English, French and Spanish. Then there is a picture of it and it says "contents, 1 piece". Does this help?

    OH....thread to my little runners.... How would you straight line quilt a Log Cabin?

    So you can see them.
    Melissa, I love the runners - and what a neat way to quilt them! I wouldn't have thought of the straight line way you did the stitching!

    This swastika is more like the ones seen in Asia which is a clockwise form. The symbol represents good luck. It can be found in India, China, South Korea, and Japan and is associated with different religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.
    I have seen it on Buddhist temples in Japan.

    This machine looks to be a Japanese clone- as Nancy has pointed out. Machine isn't rare, just the decals might be for here in the States.
    Most likely made for the Asian market and not the German market.
    The Coat of Arms doesn't even look German, which is a black eagle -unless your from Bavaria.

    Britain likes to use Coat of Arms with lions. Maybe one of the British territories in Asia is what is shown on this machine. Not Hong Kong since it's Coat of Arms is a lion and dragon. Don't know what Bombay's Coat of Arms had looked. I don't know, just guessing here on location.
    I love this shop! We all learn so much from each other! Thank you Monica!

    Miriam, Candace is the expert on here with the 319's! Luckily, I didn't have problems with the needle bar clamp!

    Candace and Glen both say it is bad news and they don't ever want to do it again.
    Candace sent a pic of how it should look done - that thing is a real bugger - I'm thinking a magnet or something to hold it in place maybe so it doesn't fall out before I get it anywhere near the machine. This one is more than holding your mouth right and not letting any swear words leak out.
