    I like the fabric. My sister and her husband have a golf "shack" on the 9th tee of a golf course. I've been looking for a wall hanging for him. Can you tell me who makes it, name, where to get it?

    You're very good at FMQ. What type of machine do you use?

    Yes. That's incredible. It's like a shadow. Both are very well done.

    I did not know that you could use the old Singers for FMQ. How do you do that? Is there some sort of plate to cover the feed dogs? I've been looking at an older electric Singer in our local Craigslist for $100 in a cabinet. The machine looks pretty similar to your picture. It doesn't say the model. The ad says that it's in working order and practically mint condition. I keep debating on if I should get it, but I sure didn't know that it might be able to do FMQ

    this machine is in a cabinet.. i was doing some reading on this model and it said to tip it up and there should be a screw right in front that enables you to do fmq.. and sure enough this one had it !!! i was so excited... and today was the first time that i was able to try it.. i am in love with the flow of the sewing and the amount of space that i had to move the quilt around.. this machine was found on craigslist with lots of extra goodies and cabinet.. hubby brought it home and surprised me !! yes ,,he is a keeper !

    Yes...your husband is a keeper!! I have a wonderful husband, but I don't think he would even notice a sewing machine. You have me thinking about getting the one that I saw in our craigslist. Is $100 a good price? It's in a cherry cabinet. The cabinet is fairly simple, it comes with some accessories (doesn't look like a lot, but shows a little green box in the picture) and has the manual.

    the fmq is only on certain models.. so if that iswhat you are looking for. then ask questions about the underneath part...(the screw)
