    Well, apparently I am the proud owner of a Singer treadle. My SIL found one at a good price and bought it for me. I do have to go get it, about a 6 hr drive. The only thing I know, for sure, about it, is it is missing the belt. How hard is it to replace and can you even get belts??
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I got one for my Davis today from a lady for 6.50. Her name is Cindy and she came recommended from some people in the davis yahoo group.

    I hope you're enjoying your new Designer Ruby, I get to play with one at work. Maybe if I sell enough of the expensive embroidery machines, I can afford to buy one for me.
    I've only had it a couple of weeks, and so far only sewn on military uniforms, but it is soooo nice. I love it!

    I have the HV Sapphire 875, love my machine!! Its built on the same chassis as the Ruby. I used the floor model Designer Ruby to quilt a baby quilt at work , it was kinda fun to listen to customers being impressed that it could do that.

    The Ruby will mainly be used for embroidery, and some military stuff. I plan to get cozy with some of my vintage machines here soon to make some stuff for the house. I have a mid-arm machine for quilting, though it has not yet been used. My mom gave it to me, and its sat in the box. Now that I have room to set up the frame I hope to put it to use!

    Belts are available anywhere for under $10. You will have to fit it to your machine. My LQS has them.

    There's one for sale in the Sac area on CL. I know one person who swears by them. I would be curious to know if the 189 is a straight and zig zag only or ?? Cool looking machine!

    Nice machine. Do you know what kind of cams it uses? We have a box of unidentified cams and we'd like to find out what they fit.
