Welcome to the Quilting Board!
How are you enjoying sewing with your Standard? I love mine. I don't use it often enough, but when I do, I enjoy sewing with it. These Standards are sweet machines. Right now, I have it set up as a chain stitch machine.
Thanks for that info, Sharon. I was wondering if they are all truly interchangeable...I have a 15 in a straight leg treadle that I want to put my 1909 66-1 in, and I thought it would fit fine, but wasn't sure. So, I won't have to find another cabinet and irons to use it. That's great news.
I haven't been here in a couple of week so I'm not really wanting to try and go back in the reading to find out what I'm wanting to know so I'll just ask
HOW IS BILLY?
He posted some yesterday. You can go to his Personal Diary in that section...he's doing OK right now.
Billy also posted on here a page or two back.
Yes she does look sad working on the rust now, I'm hoping wd40 and a steel brush will do the job.
I love, love, love the Standard! I just finished a quilt top using her, I will post it tonight. I have not set the chain stitch up yet on her yet, but all the parts are there to do it, maybe play more with her this weekend. In the meantime I am up to my elbows in dirt and grime and rust on this Raymond, I hope I can save her and make her pretty once again.
**Thank you to everyone who posted info on the Raymond, very cool sites!**
Charlee, I want that cute white cabinet that you painted with the quilting motif on the side. You should start a business selling painted vintage cabinets. I know, I know... just lots of hours went into painting it, and you would have to charge lots more than what most folks are willing to pay for a cabinet like that...but dang that cabinet is so cool! I wish I could replicate that cute cabinet, but I can't. I can't paint worth a dang since I have essential tremors. My work wouldn't look very pretty. That cabinet would be so cool in a sewing room with a FW or toy Singer sitting on top...waahhh...why did you have to show us that cabinet.
Again, you did a very nice job...so nice that I want one!
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
