    Really nice!!

    I might be wrong, but don't think the later 9W came with the glass feet....and they're not all they're cracked up to be (pun intended) as one "mis-stitch" can shatter them.

    I don't sew with mine at all...they're cool to have, but I won't chance breaking them.

    Think it's the WW#8 and earlier with the glass slippers. My #9 attachments are all steel. Going on road trip to pick up a WW#8 tomorrow.

    Enjoy your #9, looks beautiful.

    Jon, not to argue, but I thought the early 9s had glass too?

    Could be, I'm only familiar with the steel and the glass feet on the #8 though I'm very far from WW Guru.

    edit: I will search the Needlebar as I'm real curious now.

    What a pretty cabinet, too. Now that I have this WW D9 head, I know what she's supposed to look like. Haven't cleaned her up at all yet but either all her decals are gone or they are buried under alot of grime.
