    The other videos aren't coming up either. Try selecting them and go on Utube and see what happens. I'll search it out too.

    chris-quilts, Your turquoise machine looks like a clone of a White, not a Singer. Even that particular bright shade. I have a Universal that is similar, though it has white trim and is a ZZ machine. Can't see how it sews - the wiring is beyond shot.

    There is a tutorial for the fabric bowls on here - at least there was before the new format.

I'm hoping she isn't fishing for "bids" and sells it before I can make it out there and that it's not horribly messed up in some way. If nothing else, I get a nice road trip and visit with family.
    I'll back off then. I told her yesterday morning I wanted it, but would have to get to Ft Worth to pick it up. I don't really need it (even thou it is on my bucket list). I'd be sure she still had it before I drove very far.

    I knew there'd probably be someone else here who was interested too. Definitely am going to check back to verify it's still available before leaving. How annoying if we both loose out!

    I must have missed that tute. Great idea, think I'll make a few for my DH, it will save hot fingers when he nukes stuff.

    Miriam, thanks for taking the time to look those up again. I was perusing some last night. I wish they had one on there for just a featherweight, but I'm assuming the steps are similar.

    I haven't but what a beauty!!! Are you going to get it? If I were close enough, I'd be tempted and the price is right as far as I'm concerned.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Thank you. That is interesting. I have another similar looking machine but with different paint job (black) and so I'm guessing that both are White clones. Who knew? Thanks again for the information. They both thread similar to a Singer 66.

    Thanks! I'm going to make some as Christmas presents this year. I will pick out fabrics that are favorite themes for each of the family members.

    I also have that book. I got it after I saw it at the Northern California TOGA in September. It's wonderful!! Clear pictures and instructions. I haven't used all my attachments yet, but when I get a break (whenever that is!) I plan on trying them all out.

    Anyone looking for a gorgeous treadle? Fantastic oak treadle case with a decent appearing New Home machine listed on Western Mass craigslist in Amherst. Sorry- don't know how to post link. I think it was about $150.

    OK, I'm not sure how to use the board now - so can anyone tell me how Billy is or if he has a blog - how do I get to it? I haven't seen him post in several days.
