Welcome to the Quilting Board!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
I wonder if I could get Pat to pedal the bike while I sew. We all know how for this will get me. I have been keeping up with the threads but been planting garden and yard work for the last two weeks. We have had weather in the 80's so everything is growing and growing very early this year. So much to do and so little time. I have not had time to sew or play with my machines. Did pick up a 27 Sphinx with very good decals with very little silvering. I need to post my machines in the photo section someday. I have a 1968 New Home (electric with cams I bought when son was born) Made his clothes with it. The manual also said to remove the foot and it FM very well but only did it once. I prefer my treadles.

I wonder what size needle and thread he is using? I punched a lot of canvas with my tent business - I used a huge needle but I was going through lots of layers. It might take some power to go through stiff canvas.

Very cool video. People are so talented. The tension seemed a bit whacky but only added to the cuteness of it. You could also add some stiff stabilizer to the back of it to make it not as flexible.
None of the shops in my area carries the thread so on-line I will go!! Thanks!!
This is my favorite machine. LOL. It is in wonderful condition in spite of it's age. Light, and easy to carry, sews perfect straight lines. and will look nice displayed in my soon to be studio which will have a vinage look to it. This machine once belonged to my 83 year old mother's aunt. She bought it when she was in her 20's. I'm guessing it is about 90 years old.
