    Monica, I can't believe you haven't mentioned the mini TOGA next Tuesday the 27th? Cathy says you are bringing your Standard to demonstrate all those fancy attachments you have been telling us about? Anyone else coming to the TOGA in Roseville on Tuesday the 27?

    Maybe, Cathy has my hinge/pins screws! I somehow doubt it, as she doesn't have many cabinets - just tons of machines, parts, cams!

    Poor Wilbur. I had my tonsils out about 6 years ago. NOT fun as an adult and I did hemmorrhage. The doctors are ready for any sort of hiccup and I did fine....he will too. The good thing is he will recover and have much less pain than I did as an adult. I wish mine had been removed at his age!

    I remember having my tonsils and adenoids out at age 5. Didn't have any problems with it. Seems it is much better to have them out when you are young. The younger ones seem to be able to handle it much better. Good luck to Wilbur.

    That's a newbie for ya! Thanks for your patience, understanding & doing way more than you ever let on to get that quilted.

    My exact same experience...out at age 5, but I remember feeling so much better afterward. Blessings, Wilbur, for a fast recovery.

    This mini TOGA just came up, a last minute planning. Yesterday's discussion for the event was a vote for what day to meet. I'm trying to keep up with everything here, there, and elsewhere. I've been on a marathon (like everyone else before the holidays) with baking, trying to finish up another sewing project that didn't get done because of errands, and chauffeuring son to events. Found time to walk the dog. And the best part of the day was that my daughter came home from college!!

    Yes, its official! Cathy is having a mini TOGA next Tuesday. I will bring my Standard for those to inspect and give it a try.

    Are you going to be there? Anyone else? Candace, Grayhare, Kathie...I think I'm missing someone else.

    Well we do hang out at some of the same places so even though carefully worded so others wouldn't know who, I did! And I don't mind outing myself if it helps someone else not make the same mistake.

    Miriam, You have to do Christmas, no waiting. It will help in Wilbur's recovery, it will cheer him up, and the focus will be on Christmas instead of his throat.
    Hope all goes well!

    I found another Davis VF. It's down in Los Angeles area, about a 2-1/2 hour drive for me. I e-mailed the seller and she is willing to take $125 for it. The bottom of the cabinet is painted looks like in the pics. The machine looks good. I'm going to talk to her by phone tomorrow to find out if the shuttle and all is there. She wasn't sure what the shuttle is when I asked by e-mail....she is not familiar with treadle machines. She has had it on Craigslist for several months and I have been watching. Anyway, here are the pics from the ad. Let me know what you think.

    Yes, Monica, I was thinking the same thing. Also, it would be great if I could find a way to use both Davis heads on the same cabinet...only slight modification needed since my older girl has a very squared corners bed and this one is rounded. Wouldn't that be too cool? Yes!!

    That would! You will enjoy them both once you get them set up to sew.

    My machine is stitching much better now that I have cleaned it from the spray basting fiasco. No longer skipping stitches or making loops. Never again with any chemicals other than sewing oil for me.

    I can't be there, but hopefully there will be one in the spring that I can make it too. Especially now that I have my very own handcrank 66 to bring, show off & use! (well once I can connect with Janice & get her help putting the handcrank on that is LOL)

    Well, after only watching Cathy put mine on let's hope we can do it ourselves!

    I would love to go back up in the Spring for a TOGA...but next time we need to allow more time. That was a very quick trip for going so far!

    I already sent these to Nancy, but thought I"d post them here too, just in case someone has a set in their parts pile and doesn't recognize them. These are the hinges for a Pfaff cabinet.

    In order:
    1. Looking down at it from the top. The pip on the top left is actually the stem that fits into the hole on the machine base.

    2. From underneath-you can see the base is square (and that I'm missing a screw!) and the hinge body itself it flat, not round.

    3. This is close as could get to a dead-on shot. (Pardon the rubber band-it's holding the hinges up.)

    Hopefully the Turlock TOGA occurs in February, that way you and Janice don't have to travel as far.
    I will miss you and Janice. I still have the image of you working so diligently on your sewing machine cover at the last TOGA.

    Monica, that was so much fun making that sewing machine cover! I have it on my 99. That would be great if the TOGA were in Turlock, which would save us about 2 hours drive!

    LOL - I was a woman on a mission! There was no way I was going to spoil the occasion & have to finish my sewing machine cover on a electric powered machine!

    It will be tough for me to make a TOGA in February. I am entering my busy season & usually work most every weekend Jan-Feb. Will keep an eye out for something a bit later in the spring.

    Sheryl, whatever works for you will probably work out for me. I had such a good time going with you, I wouldn't want to go without you! :-)

    Nancy, We have three different machines in a cabinet that use the same pin. One is a Domestic and one is about a 1964 Brother. So just maybe these pins will show up on e bay or a repair man will have some. Hope this will help you some.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Cool - I feel the same way! I was also thinking I need to find out the exact date of your guild show so I can try to plan to make it. Isn't it towards the end of January? If I plan right I think I can swing getting away for a day.

    Just want to jump in here and tell about something I learned yesterday while visiting with my mother. Most of you will probably all ready know this but for some of us "new bee's" it might help.

    While talking about my new treadle machine I told her I only had one problem with it "there is no back stitch". She kind of laughed and we went on talking. Then all of a sudden she said "I remember, I remember!" "You remember what mom?" Well she remembered how they did a backstich. "Just raise the presser foot and guide the material back & forth". Daaaaa guess that makes sense but I hadn't thought about it.

    Everyone have a safe and Happy Holiday!

    Whatever I said in anger, Whatever I shouted in spite, I'm sorry I spoke so quickly--I thought of some worse ones tonight.

    I will try to be at the Toga Tuesday. It depends on how I feel. I have been sick since Saturday. Kathie
