    Then there was the visual in the box to teach the ladies how to use the blind hemmer.

    Miriam,

    I have one maybe two of those Greist blind hemmers. One is for a top clamp Domestic and the other is a low shank. I have different instructions than you do though.

    I also have one of the Greist ZZ attachments with the little star cams but I can't find it. I don't think I have any instructions with it, but I can't be sure until I lay my fingers on it.

    These are some neat gizmos that's for sure.

    Joe

    Based on the conversation about machine names- my name is Priscilla and I finally scored a Priscilla machine off the bay. However, it arrived with the motor mount broken, so I am sending it back. Enough to make me cry, as I just NEVER see these for sale!

    Thanks,

    I missed a Priscilla treadle machine here on CL by about an hour. Am still sad about that. She came with a beautiful cabinet.
