    Charlee, that turned out beautiful!!! You did a great job of correcting what someone else messed up!

    Glenn, Jan and her husband will be in my prayers too. Please keep us informed about them.

    Hope all goes well with Jan and her DH. Will keep them in our thoughts. Glenn please keep us up to date how they are doing.

    Charlee the cabinet is quite an improvement to the before picture. You did a nice job.

    Good idea for GW auctions Joe. At least I know your bidding code and you know mine. It's like watching your neighbor over the back fence. LOL

    This is what our DS gave me over the weekend. It is a Singer Merritt and I don't think the lady ever used it. It came with all the attachments, manual, and 30 flat cams. I know you can treadle with this machine and the manual shows you how to set it up. Also this is one of the machines that has to always have a cam in it when sewing. There is even a rebate check that she never cashed. Still had the sample cloth under the needle where the factory test the machine. I tried the machine out and it sews just like a new one.

    Been testing every kind of fabric that I have on the Viking, haven't found anything that it won't sew. Think I got a real work horse. Stitches are nice and even, very happy. Charlee that cabinet looks great.

    Great machine, Trish. I think it's really interesting that the manual tells how to set it up for treadle when it was made so late in the century.
