    Glenn - so tell me about the WW8. Herself is telling me that we don't need it and I'd like to have some ammunition. We just made it through a second weekend without getting a new machine and I think I'm going through withdrawals . Of course I should be concentrating on these:

    pinkCastleDH, the WW8 has a wonderful stitch and is a very quiet machine. Never gives you any trouble and easy to use. I love mine. Just make sure it is all there and has a bobbin or two and hopefully some glass feet with it. Yes it has glass feet inserts for the foot.

    Ps I see you have your work cut out for you. What fun you will have.

    Glenn did you ever find any glass feet? I keep looking for some - never seen any.

    Glass inserts? I don't suppose a person could make new ones, could they? What purpose do the inserts serve? Are the bobbins unobtainium? So far I'm scheduled to go see it Saturday morning

    Yeah. Some of them don't need anything but a base, they're already bright and shiny and working. Some need a bit more than that and there are four or five cabinets needing work as well. Sounds like a good excuse to excavate my workbench!

    They are glass feet the slide into a slot in the foot for regular sewing and quilting and such. I don't have any or I would send you a pic. All I have is the metal sewing foot but I am trying to find some for my machine. I quess you could make some if you knew how to work with glass but you would need an original on to make a mold to pour the hot glass in.
