Spartan is a cheaper version of the Singer 99. Minus a light and fewer pretty decals. It is a Singer 192.

There are no stupid questions........ask again and again until you understand the answer(s). I don't know where I'd be without the wonderful people on this forum. Enjoy your craft......rest when you're sore(Aleve works for me), and then when you're rested, get back in the game. It's fun!!!

Male tailors have made their living with sewing. So, don't let anyone jab you for sewing. Men seem to bring a wonderful "eye" to quilting and sewing that women don't. I always enjoy having them on the board to see their work.
So welcome and have some fun with us here on the quilting board.

Be careful what you ask for!!! I spend a lot of time on a Harley forum and have been known for some sarcastic remarks!!! In all honesty, I try to be helpful and I try to learn from others. But I will try to look on here daily and see if there is any worthwhile information y'all can give me. And perhaps tell/show you some of the crap I'm coming up with!! For example I did find some vinyl material from JoAnn Fabric and I am gonna try a small bag to see how this sews on my machine. I been trying to figure out how to make a template that fits my tank so I can sew up a prototype cover. There are some curves and arcs I'm trying to figure out. Oh well.... it's not like I have a lot to do at this time anyhow!!
Thank you all for the warm welcomes..... please don't throw me out down the road!!!
