    Well I called on the machine because I'd like to have it to play with! The guy that owns it didn't know anything about it, he bought it a year ago and had never used it. I told him to google his machine and see how it works - it is really cool! I think I lost the machine. The guy that has it sews with his Mother's 'old' machine and didn't think he needed a second machine. I am sure after he sees the u-tube on how interesting that White Fantasy works, he will decide to keep the machine. He said he'd call me, if he still wants to sell it!

    Candace, I don't know why it wouldn't be accurate? Even if the fabric is moving back and forth, I think you could still follow a line? Anyway, I love the odd and unusual! I'd love to try sewing with that machine!

    Well, if I can only use one, does that also apply to all the machines I have? LOL I sure hope not!

    I will get back to you.

    I was wondering why anyone would want to quilt with their FW, then I reminded myself, if one is quilting small sections or blocks (a quilt as you go method) a walking foot would be needed. Otherwise it would be unpleasant to quilt with that small harp space. I did that once with a Janome TB-30; quilted a queen size quilt with it's small harp area. I said never again.

    Nancy,

    The Alphasew motor will stay there as long as needed. But I shall continue searching for the brush caps until I find one or the hot place freezes over.

    Joe, tracking the 15 clones, the HA machines, seems to be a puzzle. Here's the one I'm thinking of buying. It's sewing well but the motor is noisy at lower speeds. I have no idea if that's normal. Mine is a Montgomery Wards, but there are all external labels. Name:  MW.jpg

    Sew...Nancy!!
    I spent the afternoon playing with my Necchi Supernova Ultra. Fun!! machine.

    You asked me how well does it treadle. Very nicely!!!

    I found it very easy to FMQ with after I made some adjustments to the upper tension. I felt the Necchi was easier to use for FMQ than the Singer 15-90. Can't pinpoint why that is so. The Singer is in what I consider to be the better of the two treadles.
    I'm tempted to move the Necchi out of the straight-leg and into the treadle that the Singer sits in, just that the Necchi is HEAVY.

    Lovely stitches from the Necchi.

    The Necchi has tons of decorative stitches that I'm still playing with. I can't say that the decorative stitches are prettier or better than the Singers' 401A or 328k at this point. I guess I'm missing Hank the Tank, my Singer 328k. I turned him back into an e-machine the other night. I might still use him for my decorative binding since there are a couple of stitches that I like from him.

    This is turning into a saga, sorry.

    Well, you can only use one machine at a time, correct? LOL! I have several set up and move from one to another, but only one at a time.
