    Laura, great sewing space! But, why is that zig zag machine sitting on that beautiful red cabinet with nothing under the legs to protect the cabinet you painted? I'd make a little quilted sewing machine place mat or something! It looks like you can do some serious sewing in that room!

    Huge thank-you to all of you for sharing your knowledge of vintage machines.
    I have a 1948 15-90 singer , singer 1897 treadle, singer 99-3 & 2 Kenmores that I am not sure of exact dates. My latest is a WIP as I am told its a badged National, I want to turn her into a hand crank but am told probably can't do that unless I find another National for parts.
    Dee, you are right about turning the National into a HC. Mizkaki on here might be able to help you with that issue?

    Miriam, so glad to hear the guy that hit your son has insurance! Also, I would like to see a better photo of the outfits you made for your trip! Here I thought you only played with machines and didn't sew much - shows how much I know!

    They are beasts, but work very well and don't need to be removed from the machine to change a cam size. The size adjustments are the wing nuts on the side.

    Cathy, wouldn't it be cool if you or Pat or someone demonstrated how those old buttonholers work at our next TOGA? Something to think about - I would love to see someone make a buttonhole with a treadle or handcrank!

    Jean, that picture of Gus could be an ad for all kinds of dog related things - like take me with you, don't leave me home! What a great photo! That dog is just adorable!

    I think a hand crank would be cool way to make a button hole with one of those gadgets. I just got another one working!!! Tensions were off.

    Yes I really do sew when I'm not having too much fun with a sewing machine. I don't have a detailed pic of us in our duds. That was one somebody just snapped while we were sitting around. I do some of it by hand - I take it with me when I have some place where I have to wait. That cap was all hand sewn - I used an old linen blouse - linen is expensive - blouse at the thrift store for a buck. I made a matching pocket - I'd have to dig it all out...

    I confess to spending a lot of time on this upcoming election, reading....reading...and reading some more! Have to make the right decisions! (Altho I've pretty much made up my mind )

    No new machines lately, and I haven't even been on Craig's list or to my favorite haunts lately! Starting to feel the deprivation and have been itching to go out and do some serious junkin'!!

    Gotta go back and read what everyone has been up to!! ~hugs all around~
    Charlee, it is really nice to hear you are doing better. Have you had any time to sew while you are preparing for the election!

    Chris it is also nice to hear from you again! Did you get the Pfaff?

    I've been wondering the same. Just because I don't ask doesn't mean I don't think of some of you when you don't post.

    Nancy- not to worry- there is a piece of red felt under the machine to protect the table. Sorry the pics are so awful, but I figured I had to post something or it would all seem like a dream....next pictures will be more organized.

    Had a frustrating evening- was sewing away on the pink quilt when a piece of the free motion foot broke off- didn't hit it or anything, just the spring sproinged. Well that little bit went down into the bobbin case and I marred the bobbin case and broke a needle, all in a matter of a minute! So now I am waiting for my industrial to have a new case and replacement foot to arrive before I can finish this hospice quilt. Good news is the bobbin case for an industrial is cheap. I guess the machine knew I was in a hurry! laura
