    Hey Charlee, how are you. I was just talking to Barb and she suggested I ask you about what to use. Yes, it's good to be home. Thanks.

    As far as clunk goes I have a clone that goes clunk, locks up in the place under the peep hole in the back where the light attaches - as soon as you look at it the machine quits clunking and turns like it wants to. I think there is a gremlin in there somewhere.

    I like our descriptive names... clunck, clink, rattle.. and not to forget thingee, whatchamacallit, dohicky, thingamajigger.

    I told my daughter the other day that the store she wanted was kattywonkus to the gas station. She didn't understand, and then said 'Oh! you mean kittycornered!'.

    I can remember my grandma giving directions - "turn left where the old school house used to be"

    All highly technical terms!

    Miriam...in one town where I lived in Colorado, in the same house for YEARS....everyone called it "The Schafer House"... the Schafers were the previous owners, and to my knowledge it's still the "Schafer House"!

    Does anyone know what accessories are available for an Anker RZ, aka New Home CZ, aka Free Westinghouse? It is a low shank machine. Would any low shank accessories work on it? Also does anyone know a good source for the bobbin tire for the same machine? Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks. ~G~

    Well, I pretty much finished up work on a Singer 99-13 I picked up a few weeks ago. Just a few touch ups left.
