    I think the machine here was purchased in 1995 and has not been used in the last 5 or 6 years.

    I just want to let everyone that Jan(TexasJan) will not be posting for awhile. Her husband Dick is in the hospital with leukemia and will be there for sometime. Her days are spent with him at hospital. She will keep me posted and I will keep you guys informed to. Say a prayer for him. Skipper

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Geeze, your nephew was brave! We have a very large coyote hanging around here stealing the geese eggs from a local marshy area. It makes me sad because this pair of geese come back here every year to lay their eggs and raise their young. After the coyote got the eggs twice, the geese moved on. I felt sorry for the geese, but I try to tell myself that the coyote has to eat too and maybe it has puppies to feed. I could never let a coyote take any animal, though, if I was witness to the event - without a major battle!

    Yes, Glenn I have talked to Jan. The hospital is about 40 miles away so Jan is running on air . . . she is trying to be at the hospital as much as possible and take care of all the normal everyday things at home too - doesn't leave any room for taking care of herself!

    Jan, you and your DH are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Nancy, I know she is running on air. I talked to her on the phone today and she is hanging in there but it is rough on her and the hopital is not close. Such a dear friend and I am so far way but I do keep in touch with her daily. Thank you for caring. Skip

    I know! We thought at first that we could work it out so I could go with him...but that's not going to work out. He'll get to meet up with his dad, uncle, aunt and cousin while he's there tho... (They live in/near Lodi)

    I got that 403 last year just before Christmas. The cabinet had been "painted" with stain, but no finish, and it looked awful, even tho I'm sure the painter thought they were doing the right thing, and for awhile, it might have looked better....but this is what it looked like when I brought it home, it was black, sticky/gummy, and downright ugly!

    I sent an email to Skip and asked if there was an "easy fix". (That would be the fix I prefer, being basically lazy like I am! ) The simple answer was "no". I had to strip it, restain, and refinish it. I put it off until about 3 weeks ago, and I've been working on it since then! I finally, even with a few places that I'm not happy with, declared it DONE!! I'm not 100% happy with it, but it's better than it was, to be sure!

    Good idea for GW auctions Joe. At least I know your bidding code and you know mine. It's like watching your neighbor over the back fence. LOL

    This is what our DS gave me over the weekend. It is a Singer Merritt and I don't think the lady ever used it. It came with all the attachments, manual, and 30 flat cams. I know you can treadle with this machine and the manual shows you how to set it up. Also this is one of the machines that has to always have a cam in it when sewing. There is even a rebate check that she never cashed. Still had the sample cloth under the needle where the factory test the machine. I tried the machine out and it sews just like a new one.

    Been testing every kind of fabric that I have on the Viking, haven't found anything that it won't sew. Think I got a real work horse. Stitches are nice and even, very happy. Charlee that cabinet looks great.

    Great machine, Trish. I think it's really interesting that the manual tells how to set it up for treadle when it was made so late in the century.
