Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I am doing better...still get really tired, easily, but all in all, am actually pretty well. Thanks for asking!
Sorry, two different subjects. I was admiring your sewing machine cabinet and commenting on an earlier post with a pic of a decoupaged "bust" someone was using to display jewelry. I've seen your doll too...very cute! Isn't it nice to know how much you're missed when you're not around?
I am cleaning out my office and ran across the case for my FW. Eeeek! I don' t want to open it because I know it had moldy odor issues two years ago. I had tried leaving it open in the summer sunlight for days and to no avail.
What is the BEST way to get rid of that odor? Or, is replacing the felting inside the only way. I hate musty smelling stuff.
Tons of options!
The other thing is that Dave McCallum - http://www.featherweight221.com/fwrx/index.html - suggests using a lamp with a stable base and heating the inside. That's in keeping with a lot of the comments in the other link above. I can't remember the specifics of what he said (wattage and time) but if needed, I suppose I can bring myself to watch that portion of the DVD again...
This link has some good suggestions too:

Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
On the Post to thread page, scroll down to Manage Attachments and click on that. It gives the size of images you can load. Your photo may may be too large to upload. Double check your photo and see how big it is. You may have to make it smaller by your computer photo program and then go back and upload it. I had to do that with some of mine as they were way bigger than the QB will load and they loaded quickly. Good luck...
I just got a 99K, and the cabinet. And I just answered a CL ad for a 66 in a bentwood case. The machine looks in very good condition. The decals look very nice. The case looks nice; the wood looks a bit dry. It even has the key! I will pick her up tomorrow, I couldn't resist the price $20.
I really have to stop looking on CL
My children tell me I have too much free time, I am waiting for my 3rd knee surgery. Hmm....wonder if it could be related.
