    Randa, that is a very good idea about the pictures of the machines with their people! I have searched high and low just to find a photo of my mother treadling her mother's machine! Nothing, natta, no pictures anywhere! I would love to know what machine she treadled! My Dad bought Mom her first electric (Pfaff 130) machine just to keep her home! She'd go over to Gramma's house and use Gramma's treadle to make clothes for my brother and me. I will never know what treadle my Grandmother had - no photos of the machine anywhere!

    Joe, hopefully someone will want to preserve the old machines we all have invested our time, money, and love into!

    I keep taking photos, but then they make the room look too messy and I delete them! I work the next 5 days in a row, maybe next week. if I haven't posted pics by the next time cathy comes over ( usually to save my butt from some repair disaster, lol) I hearby give her permission to snap some photos and post them, wheather you can see anything but piles of fabric or not! laura

    What's a sewing room with out PILES and PILES of fabric??? It's when the piles sneak into the rest of the house you have to be upset.

    Miriam, I am thinking instead of bad karma in your house - you have some exceptionally good karma! Your household/extended household seems to come out of the bad situations just fine! I am so glad Wilbur is better and that your son is ok!

    Laura, none of us can keep up with everything/everyone on here all the time! We all drop in for a spell when we can! No one is expected to keep up with everything! Just pop in when you can and don't apologize when you can't!

    OMG, Laura. Don't let the piles stop you from posting pics. You should see my work space, spaces. Projects, projects everywhere and hardly a place to sit or work. And, I am sure that I am not alone. I keep thinking that if I had more room I could be organized and neat. NOT. I would just fill it up with more sewing machines and fabric.
    Sweet Caroline

    Kelly,

    Here is a link that shows the difference between the Standard slim and stout. It also shows the difference in the spider which is used for a chain stitching, how to thread the machine, and how to insert the spider.

    Enjoy your machine!

    The Asians feel that when bad situations happen the karma isn't good and something must be done to fix whatever condition is presenting or making the series of bad events happen. That is why Feng Shui is big in Asia.

    One could look at it as bad karma for the event to occur while others look at it as good karma for the person to still be alive. I like to look at it as some guardian angel is watching over the person to see them to safety from that bad event.

    rain falls on everybody - I think it is a matter of how you handle what ever happens when it does - good things are easy - bad things are not easy but they are easier if you don't get too focused on the bad things.

    My son is pretty sore today - his friends have taken up a collection to buy him a car and pay for a chiropractor - I think his insurance should handle some of it but he doesn't know. He will be off work for a few days because of the sores on his hands. This is the second wreck this year he has walked away from both with minor bodily harm. The one in January was on the expressway and I am so thankful he only hit a wall and not a semi. His truck was totaled. This time I'm thankful for Honda engineering - he was driving our very old Honda. I think if he had been in something else he would not be here. The other driver was going way faster than he claims - there was horrible damage to the Honda as well as the other car - I'm betting it was totaled - the 4 guys in it went to the hospital in the ambulance - that car was a new Charger - bigger is not necessarily better.

If she doesn't receive a thank you before the wedding, she does not give a wedding gift. I just think she is missing the blessing. If I never gave a gift (or information, response, etc) after NOT receiving a thank you, I most likely would never give another gift. What a shame.
    I'm getting older....I tend to forget things and as many times as I've written notes, or told myself "I will not forget", I do! An offer of information is not a promise. If I make an offer and after a few days you haven't received it, please remind me. I have a life beyond this quilt board and often forget I was going to do something, or even when to go somewhere. People are human and humans are imperfect. Sad that one may think my forgetfulness is "jerking" someone around, or ignorance on my part.
    I'm not "dis'n'" anyone....just thinking life has worse things to offer than this....my sister has lung cancer, my coworker's brother has throat cancer, my brother has an undiagnosed incapacitating pain in his legs and feet, my husband suffered a pituitary tumor, on and on and on! And still life goes on. Forgive and forget. Ignore and move on. LOL!

    All of us have busy schedules, all of us have someone in their life with illness or on the verge of death, all of us are some times too tired to think clearly, and all of us can NOT read all posts and NOT make responses to all post.

    I'm now sorry that I had even brought this subject to attention. I know better. At the time, I did so out of frustration from so many times asking a question or wanting to see a photo, but never getting a response. I felt like I had been ignored when there was no response given.

    Randa and everyone else, I post links and give of my time by hunting information for the poster that asked question out of my love and passion to share information. Randa, please don't compare me to your fellow coworker...that is like comparing apple to oranges.

    The gift of giving is a blessing and a very rewarding one.

    Randa, Laura, and anyone else that has been hurt from my postings, I sincerely apologize.

    With that I bid you all peace!
    Vintagemotif- Monica
