    For anyone looking for a 99 or a 15 clone, there are several on Shopgoodwill.com right now...

I do love seeing all the new vintage machines that have been rescued!! There are some days that I look at all the new threads started and other days not. The only tiresome and sometimes frustrating part of reading the QB this way is the amount of the "I got a new machine" threads makes it difficult to find other threads, like Joe was looking for yesterday.

    Maybe, the best thing is if there were more of the "Sticky" threads besides MUV's tutorial on cleaning a machine in the "For the Vintage & Antique Machine Enthusiast". The list should included different attachments, photos of machines, quilts made with vintage machines, FW questions, Glenn's tutorial on cabinet restoration.
    This way those that are new to vintage machines or those needing information from a particular thread but don't stop by the Vintage Machine category often enough can find the subtopic of interest on the first page. Hopefully this conveys what I was trying to say.

    So, with all that dribble from me, I'll be off setting up subscriptions to threads.
    Monica, I sent a request to a moderator to put those threads up with stickies, so maybe they will do it now. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I haven't gone on that hunt; so, I haven't got a clue! Maybe someone like CD Thayer, Cathy, or Pat may have an idea where you could possibly find one.

    Sharon or Candace do you need a manual? http://s2.vsmgroup.com/VSM/Pfaff/pfaffmanual.nsf
    Nancy
    Nancy,
    I have the manual and have tried out some of the stitches, they don't look quite right. Most of the time I use my
    Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 875 for decorative stitches, she does them so well. )

Which can be a bit of a headache when there are a bunch of us sewing together.
    Candace,
    I FMQ with mine, I have the original darning foot and I don't think it works as well as the snap on darning foot.
    I also bought a modern ankle for it so I can use current feet, the ankle was expensive; but worth every penny.

    Yes, I have that ankle. I got it so I can get a snap on 1/4" foot. I want the one without the guide. I find the original FMQ foot works great. Is it possible you don't have the stitches stabilized enough? Or you need to play with the tension? I found I have to lower the top tension for all of the embroidery stitches. Which is also what I have to do with most other machines with embroidery stitches, like the 401 etc.

    Candace,
    I'll try your suggestions about the top tension settings and see if things improve.
    Thanks,
