    not exactly right, but gave me some ideas.....if you cut down the legs of a table, or used adjustable legs, and built a shaped platform to the left, wouldn't that work? ort of like the MUTT, only for electrics? Just a thought. I could be babbling, here. Laura
    Laura,

    Perhaps if I had some room to work and the tools. Right now I have the barest necessities of hand and electrical tools and no room to work at all.

    Miriam, the one I bought in 1973 with my Elna is extremely sturdy. The one bought for the serger in 1991 isn't as good as quality, but it will hold anything I put on it with no vibration.

    Joe it sews great. Nice even stitches and I will use it to piece quilts. With the spool bobbin it will go a long time without changing the bobbin often.

    I finished a quilt!I quilted a giant spider web on it on my Davis VF! There is a little less space under the arm than my 201, but it worked out, and not a single wrinkle on the back. Most of the blocks were from a swap, but I put it together on my 201, whom I call Queen Mary, for some reason. Then, I sewed the binding down with my little Montgomery Wards zig zag. I will NEVER machine sew a binding again! I ended up having to satin stitch it, because I had made so many rumples. It was just to much to unpick it all. I sized this quilt to drape over the back of the couch- Carve a few pumpkins and I am done decorating for Halloween. Laura
