    Congrats on 29 year - these days a lot of people don't make it that long at all... some don't even bother to get married. Do you have any kidos???

    So, now that I'm officially learning to sew, I want to repair it. How best to start? Machine stitch the repairs? Pull the backing off and repair the front, then replace the backing and re-quilt it. That is "if" it was quilted originally. I can't remember. I haven't seen it in years.

    When my wife gets home I think I'll ask her where it's at and dig it out and see.

    Oh, we'll be married 29 years this Feb 26th. Where in the world does time go?

I also can't find the new belt I purchased, but you can't help me with that. I had the motor rewired and the other wiring looks good, so I'm ready to try it.
    I have one that has to have to top off to put the front all the way on. Dunno if that will help or not. Good luck.

    Mirium,

    Thanks for the congrats. I made up my mind many years ago I was only going to be married once. And I figured it should last a long time.
    No kids for us. Wife has three by her first marriage.



    Glen,
    Where do I find Jan the Quilt Doctor?

    Joe, her board name is quiltdoctor, her real name is Jan. She posts here, and you should be able to send her a PM using her board name.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Wondering about that for a quilt I made 30 years ago. It was well used. I still haven't decided if I will do it myself or just forget it. Keeping the Quiltdoctor in mind tho. Thanks. BTW I am celebrating my 41 anniversary tomorrow. No kids either. Couldn't have them after my accident when I was 18.

    After you get to know that one you are going to like it. Does it have the double disks that you can modify? Probably dates late 60s or early 70s - is it all metal inside and out? Looks like a nice table too. Does the table have a machine lift?
