Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I left the camera in the car when we were hauling cabinets around. I should have gotten before and after pics. Totally slipped my mind once I got in there and started playing. That Japanese machine is pretty fascinating - I wish I knew more about them. The Alden is made in Japan - I like it.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

I've been away busy with Christmas preparations. Found out DH tried to win a hand crank for me on Bay (he actually bid on a few
couple Frister and Rossman, a Jones and a Singer with Roses )but at the last minute the same bidder bid them up high. It was a nice though. I told him someday my machine with floral decals would be there - at the right price.
You know Monica, you are just making us all want a Standard sewing machine with all the attachments! Thank you for the photos - pretty cool what some of these old gals can do! You need to demonstrate all your new finds at the next TOGA! That would be a blast!
Here is the little Santa wall hanging I had to do on my Two Spools Treadle to get the grid lines straight! It is made using that fusible 1" grid, which I had never done before. I am not sure I want to do it again either - I'd rather do bargello than that grid, but once I figured out how to do it, it actually went very fast! I did all the grid lines on the Two Spools then did a "flip and sew" putting the back and binding on and turning it right side out with the 15-88 treadle. No electricity was used on this little Santa!
