    Yeah, I think that happens to me but I look up the shop on my 'home' to see what's up...

    Oh, I found the little teensy, tiny screw that I dropped last night. So, I will try what was last suggested in a bit. I HOPE it works. :-D :-D :-D

    In regards to that little screw I purchased a set of mechanics magnet wands from the auto parts store for less than $4.00 they have a telescoping handle and are great for getting lost things like pins,and screws.

    Thanks Donna, that is on my list now of things to get next time we go to town. (town is 30 minutes away so we make lists and try to make our trips count)

    I need to get one of those. I vacuumed up a piece off of my Davis this weekend. :-( So changed out the bag right away, but do you think I can feel it easily? So have it all in a grocery bag now and will sift through it again. :roll:

    Lisa if you have a speaker magnet or a strong magnet off of your refrigerator you can run it through the grocery bag of dirt and it will stick to it.

    Hope this helps....

    Well today is the day!
    hubby is at home this afternoon and I am digging out some of my machines. and making a list with serial #'s
    decided that a singer treadle in the bedroom needed some TLC!
    so this is the first one we will clean up with Billy's tutorial!
    It is so dirty that I can't read the serial #!!
    am taking pics will post when we get this one done!
    can't wait as it looks like the decals are really nice(thru the dirt)
