    Treadling:
    I like to treadle when I can do long stretches of stitches in straight lines or gentle curves. I hate piecing on a treadle. What a pain in the keester. Give me my 'lecktrik mocheen PALEEZE!


    Messing with stuff:
    It is a "guy" thing. If it's not broke we'll fix it anyway.

    Joe, does the guy thing apply to male cats as well? My DD's male cat unthreaded her machine and looked very pleased with himself!

    I just have to post and tell everyone how excited I am about my 201! It sews so smoothly and beautiful stitches. Took some time to get every thing right, but it was worth it! My SIL fixed the cabinet so that we can interchange machines and now my DD says she might like it better than the 301. It's so hard to decide which is my favorite.

    I can definitely say that the 'guy thing' applies to all species.

    My DH says he breaks stuff so he can fix it, right Joe? Must be bored.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Does anyone have a Windsor B. Sewing Machine? I restored mine a while ago and I was searching for info on it so I can sell it. All of the ones I found are not even close to mine.
    Thanks.

    Windsor B was made by National for Montgomery Ward. Here's an earlier auction for the same model:

    It absolutely does apply to boy kitties too. They love to get into anything and everything.

    As for our 201 it's quiet and smooth. My wife loves it.

    I can't say that I've deliberately broken things just so I could fix them. But I've broken things and had to fix them.
    Not bored, just tire.

    Joe, what is wrong with piecing with a treadle? I love to piece using my 319w in treadle, or my Two Spools treadle. I find it just as fast as using the "lectrik mocheen." I don't see why it is a problem unless you are new to treadling and have trouble with thread breaking. When I first started treadling I would not have pieced with a treadle - all I did was sew forward then go back - breaking thread constantly. But, after lots of practice, I don't see a different in treadling or using an electric machine, except for speed. If you are racing like I did Sunday in a class, you need electric to keep up!
