    Charlee, so sorry to hear the news:<
    Candace, do you ever have trouble with it skipping stitches? If so, how did you deal with it? I am really looking for a good machine to FM with. I have tried my 2 modern Janomes and get soooooo frustrated! I have about 9 or 10 tops that need quilted and don't want to spend the money to hire a long armer, $$$ tight these days. But my sanity is worth something. LOL

LOL I guess I have to remember that without it I wouldn't be able to buy the machines. I just keep thinking that when/if I ever get to retire I will have all these toys to keep me busy. Maybe I'll have to try out the 201 for the FM, or get DH to work on the 15. My next project was supposed to be my 66 Redeye that I put the hand crank on. Gotta love them old ladies!!!!!!!!!!!
    I haven't had much luck FMQ with my 201...but my 15-91 ROCKS!

    I don't own the manual. The machine came with part of a White manual, which was my clue that this machine's hand wheel turns away and not forward.

    Funny, I can't remember where, but I think it was here on the QB that someone mentioned a "spider" for chain stitching. From that posting, I realized my mystery attachment was the "spider". Since I don't own a manual, I had to figure out how the mechanism fits into the machine and work. I couldn't figure out the hemmer. I asked around, and it was one of the gals on the yahoo Gold Country TOGA group that had the answer and directions for me to follow.

    Charlee, This picture is for you today. I loved your thread that you started on proper attire while sewing.Now I know what I've been doing wrong!

    My mom owned a Necchi Supernova, which I learned to sew on and sewed with for years. My mom was always dressed nicely back then, just that she never worn her cocktail dress while sewing. She still does dress nicely now, just in blue jeans. At 80, she still wears her makeup, shoes in house, and has pretty nails.

    Anyhow...<<HUGS>>

    Finished my 1881 Singer Model 12

    Last summer I bought this fiddlebase Singer off CL. I had to get another boat shuttle for it, but the rest of it was intact. There was little paint left on her, so I knew she would be a repaint. The veneer was off the top of the table, but it was hardwood in 4 pieces underneath. I haven't got her sewing yet, as the shuttle is rubbing on the feed dogs, but she is pretty to look at. Now to find a coffin top for her and maybe a drawer or two. The seller has restored a police car just like the one in Mayberry RFD, the old Andy Griffith show. I decided to name this machine Beatrice, after the Mayberry Aunt Bea.
    Many thanks to Glenn for all his help and guidance.

    Nancy, everytime I see the Gibbs cabinet I am amazed at what a great job you and your husband did in removing the black paint. That was no small task. Pat your self on the back agian.
