    Wow! I can't wait to see pictures! Some of the Minnesota's were beautiful - a badged White!

    What is in the little door on the front of the Borletti machine? Does it take cams or something? It is so cool! Love the fold down bed! Can't wait to hear more about her!

    Laura and Elsie, you both have beautiful Lotus machines! Elsie, all Lotus decaled machines were 66's.

    Kathie, I find Liquid Gold at Lowes, but you won't need any for a while! I use that stuff on my kitchen cabinets, my treadle cabinets, my machines to shine them -- everywhere!

    Weedwoman, I would think I had died and gone to heaven if I found a Model 24 like that -- green cabinet and all! It is in great shape!

    Tomilu can we see what the Pfaff 230 looks like? I've not been that lucky to find a 201 for nothing!

    Sewbizgirl, I know you found the slide plate, but in the future if you are missing something like that Billy usually carries them.

    Elsie can I be the heir to that Victor DeLux? Geeze, that machine is pretty! But, the one parlor cabinet - what is in that cabinet? That looks like my friend's cabinet, really looks a lot like my cabinet too -- and we have Free's in that cabinet.

    Nancy

    Cherrybsixty, I think you are quite charming - never offensive! Geeze, it is hard to get your feelings across sometimes when only typing! I actually thought it was funny!

    Sorry to hear about GF - that is very young for a heart attack!

    Nancy, you are right about the typing thing. But, my adult children say that I am quick to label and I really shouldn't do that. Happy riding and sewing to you, make it a 'Nancy-kind of day.'

    I tell you what there are some really nice machines coming out here lately! Looks like I might have to go "Down Under" to find my 201K! :P That was a haul and a half!!!!

    Hopefully in a week or so I can work on some of mine I still have a few I need to list on here to sell but I still have customers in line to be worked on.

    Nancy I called Lowes first and they told me they had it. I went over there and they did not. That is why I called Scott's ordered it from them. Kathie

    Elsie, how blessed you are! I'm searching for a 201 but either I get there too late or it's a 201-2 which cannot be made into treadle. Enjoy you're girls. This is so much fun! Annie
