    Not nosy! Curious! My sewing is like my painting....can't keep a straight line in either one! (I think it has something to do with the way I dress... )
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Hi Janice, I wish I was closer to you. I would love to see all the quilts, and the antique/vintage sewing machine exhibit, it all sounds like a fun. Good Luck, and have fun!

    Anamaria, your new baby is BEAUTIFUL!! I don't think I've ever seen one in that good of shape, and have NEVER seen one for sale...

    I am with you Charlee on a Pfaff. I bought a Pfaff serger and couldn't get it to do squat! Also couldn't get any training from the local dealer. Traded that in on my Brother 1500 and have never regretted it for a second!

Was more work than it was worth to do the same thing I can do with my 15-91.
    I have a handquilting frame that I can use to pin quilts or hand quilt with, so that's all good...

    I sold the Pfaff and bought the spousal unit a beater of a pickup truck that he loves! Smartest thing I've done in awhile, he doesn't say word one about my machines now!!

    Hollyann,
    Here are pictures of my Standard machine (which looks like yours) and the hand wheel. Sorry that I made the mistake on the stop motion screw. The Standard still has a stop motion screw on its hand wheel, just that it is much smaller than the Singers and that it is not in the center. Hopefully that helps you now.

    Anamaria,
    Cute 24-50 machine! Nice that it came with attachments and manual. You will have to bring this machine to the next CA TOGA.
