    Just purchased a Q24. Head feels heavy and cumbersome, but I am assured it will get easier. Bernina is famous for well made precision products. I chose Bernina because I have two of their domestic machines (530 & 880), which I love, plus my dealer is about 3 miles away. They've been super helpful.

    I would love to hear others' thoughts.

    I would suggest starting in the middle of the quilt. That way as you progress the fabric in the neck of your machine will get smaller and easier to handle.

    I mostly make quilts for charities, but we are in groups. Project Linus, a local hospital, my guild. I have plenty of my own quilts, and so do my kids. Doing for others is a great way to "sew down" my stash.

    It's lovely no matter what the year. AND she'll sew like a dream. I love my old Singer treadle. Something about the sound of the pedal and wheel that just makes it so soothing to the soul.

    Hi Ruthie, Iím a new member, but would dearly love to have your scraps! I joined in June but today was the first day I roamed around here, and ordered an e-book of Boston Blocks. I made my first two quilts in the last 3 months and am just plain hooked!

    Thank you so much!

    Sears & Roebuck History. I am not sure which model you have but Davis went out of business in 1924. The Minnesota K Model was the last Singer Model to be in the Sears catalog 1919. 1907 - 1911 years are selling for average $200.00 with cabinet. In 1899 saw the introduction of a vibrating shuttle sewing machine made by The Davis Sewing Machine Company of Dayton, Ohio. With a few exceptions, Davis would become the sole supplier of sewing machines to Sears until about 1912. It is during this time period that we have many of the Minnesota brand machines including the Models A, B, C, D, and K to name a few.
    Beginning in 1911, the company introduced a number of machines based on Singer designs. They were the 'Franklin' (1911) and the 'Minnesota A' (1914), copies of Singer's Model 27/127 class manufactured by the Domestic Sewing Machine Company of Buffalo, New York. The 'Franklin' was decorated with Egyptian styled decalcomania, clearly in imitation of Singer's beautiful 'Memphis' decoration scheme. The 'Minnesota' was decorated in the same type of gold filigree used on the Davis-made 'Minnesota A.'
    The Domestic company had been founded by William A Mack, inventor of the Mack-Patent High-Arm sewing machine * the first truly modern high-armed lock stitch machine. However, by the 1910s the company had been reduced to manufacturing machines based on Singer designs. Sears likely changed its main supplier to Domestic because the Buffalo company could supply Singer copies. The only other retailer that sold more sewing machines in the United States was Singer. Both the Franklin and Minnesota Model A were near-exact copies of the Singer Model 27/127 (the most popular Singer model at the time). Sears Roebuck also marketed them as a lower priced, equivalent quality alternative to the pricey Singer. As such, the action was likely an attempt by Sears to increase its market share in the sewing machine business.
    In the proceeding years, Sears slowly phased out sales of Davis sewing machines in favor of models made by Domesticand other manufacturers. These included the Minnesota L vibrating shuttle and the Economy rotary, both manufactured by the Standard Sewing Machine Company of Cleveland, Ohio. The last Davis model to be carried by Singer was the Minnesota K, which no longer appeared in the catalog after 1919. Davis would eventually go out of business about 1924, having apparently become dependent on supplying Sears with sewing machines over the previous twenty years for its main venue of income and unable to make up the loss from other sources.
