    Hi Sharone! I looked through some of your posts on your quilts. All are very lovely!
    Do you own any old machines? Are you from South Africa or an expat? I'm curious as to what type of vintage machines you come across in South Africa and where do you find most of them.

    Opps, Just read your intro, and I see that you live in Kuwait. Ok, same questions apply for Kuwait. I would love to see any vintage machines from this region. Thanks!

    Welcome!

    Ditto that!! Really nice. I'm not a fan or pink OR horse quilts in general, but this one is really different. And nice!

    Nancy, Will this Pfaff fit into your cabinet? I now think of Nancy whenever I see a vintage Pfaff.

Don't know how much it would cost for that big a sheet, though. The machine turns very smooth.

    Greywuuf, I think you have a better chance of Hell freezing over than to see any response or photo.
