Cari, can the flap be removed and then the cradle installed? I have a 301 cradle and a Singer model 40 cabinet with a flap on the right side. Is there a way to use my cabinet with the 301 cradle? TIA

Oh, I wish you were closer to me - I have a Singer 66-1 treadle that I need to get rid of due to space. It has the lotus decals and I would love for it to go to someone who would actually use it!

I always do all of my cutting at home so I don't "hog" the cutting station! And I take a small cutting board and rotary cutter to set up by my machine to use for squaring up and other small cuts.
