    I found out - your son's daughter! Beautiful girl!

    Another question, you have your 301 in treadle?
    No, the 301 is an emachine, but with a 1956 b'day, she is vintage. I was only referring to the fact that the tan ones are not pretty. No, the quilt isn't really two sided. I just had to put the daughters and the Marine Corps on the back because I ran out of room. The dark haired daughter will graduate this year and the blonde is in junior high. I should have pieced the back, but I was done!! I'm behind one quilt as it is and now I still have the Redeye to work on.

    I don't have any trouble with regular photos, but the one I'd like to use of this quilt was cropped to remove my son's bare stomach and I couldn't get it to transfer. I have now, but I won't repost it.

    The Amerikan is a pretty machine. New Home did a nice job, didn't they.

    lets see if the picture will load this time - I've had expert help - and you thought I couldn't do it... This is a picture of the Singer FW my mom got in 1948 as a college graduation picture. Tutorial coming soon.

    Someone on here posted some great shots of the threading path for the New Home. I think it was Monica, so can you re-post those photos for Randa?
    Nancy
    New Home!!! Well how about that, since I may have to find a new home if another machine appears on my doorstep!! LOL!! No...he has a motorcycle which cost more than all of my machines together and he's gone a lot in the summer riding that thing, so I have to have something to keep me busy! He says, you won't let me bring my motorcycle in the house, but you have room for more machines??? I told him as soon as he gets the okay from the insurance man to have the motorcycle in the house he can move it in. LOL! My machines don't run on gasoline!! Okay, back to the New Home...Where can I find a book on it? I need a diagram for threading. I have a ton of attachments...not sure they are from this machine cuz they have a "fork" on the back...guess that would work though...it is a back screw. Just don't look like the foot that's on it now. I should have paid closer attention when you all were talking about them a hundred pages ago! LOL!

    Randa, here is a New Home Rotary manual, but I think they thread about the same. http://www.ismacs.net/newhome/manual...ary-manual.pdf

    I also have a New Home shuttle type manual. I will find that for you.

    Nancy

    Here is the shuttle New Home. This is from the Smithsonian so it is a little harder to download! http://www.sil.si.edu/DigitalCollect...es/image11.htm

    Your attachments should have a fork on the back since your Amerikan is a back clamping type machine, anyway it looks back clamping to me in your picture!

    From the ISMACS needle list:

    *In place of a 20x1 needle, it is often possible to compensate for the difference in needle length by setting a (shorter) 15x1 eedle correspondingly lower in the needle clamp.
