    I like this one but there is no room in the inn. Well, there is but DH might actually either shoot me or adopt several mastiffs as he now threatens to do.

    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/atq/3150207704.html This one is interesting. Says the picture is from Singer website but theirs is in a cabinate. It is a 66 Lotus decals handcrank. Makes me want to respond just to see what they actually have!!
    FYI: NO longer an active ad but it is still posted. Bummer!

    i agree. i think it's the coloring in the decals that are off. i see someone on this board bought this machine. i wonder does she like it now.

    I'm contemplating buying a Necchi Julia Supernova. But, it doesn't have any cams. What are the pluses and minuses of this model? Without any cams it would basically be a straight stitch machine, correct? I'd appreciate feedback.

    Nice machine. The one I ruined needed Triflow... I shot some kind of cutting oil or something in there and melted the stitch length lever. HOWEVER - I saw one nearly like it and it was all metal.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Anyone in this area, Shared Stitches - the quilt store in Shingle Springs - is having a yard sale this Saturday! I am going to take 2 Japanese 15's, a couple 66-13's (not in a cabinet), White Rotary black embossed crinkle, a Singer 99 hand crank, and maybe a couple others to try and sell! I am going to try and get down to just the machines I really like or use -Name:  Morse 15 clone front face.JPG
Views: 1634
Size:  1.30 MB and I have about 60 machines now! I will only sell this Morse if I can get a decent price - he is so purrrrrty! I found, I love using my Pfaff 260 - I just pieced a quilt top with her yesterday! I also love the 401's, 500's, etc.! I don't use the 15's for FM as I use my Singer 15-88 treadle or a Pfaff!

    Finally home !!

    After 50 days in the hospital, DH is finally home. He is in remission from leukemia right now, and hopefully will stay that way. I am extra busy now trying to fatten him up. (40 pounds loss in 50 days takes a toll on a body, Plus chemo) Thanks for all your prayers, well wishes and notes. They mean a lot. Still won't be on much, but will be reading.

    Jan,

    Glad to hear it. Now, make him a double Dutch chocolate cake with home made chocolate icing on top for a welcome home.

    Oh, don't for get the ice cream.

    Does anyone here have a Singer hand crank set up they'd sell for the same price Sew-Classic gets for the Chinese ones? I know I'm reaching a bit, but I've finally got my 99K sewing and I want to put a hand crank on it, but not a Chinese one.

    The Morse, and an Electra black 15 with a scroll face plate. I will be in a class at SS from 10 - 4, so Shirley is going to watch my table with the machines! Come on in the store! The yard sale will be from 10-2, and from what I hear there will be lots of quilt kits, fabric, etc., all sewing stuff! They are holding the yard sale in the big barn next to Shared Stitches! I will know more what I am bringing after I go through my machines today!

    Jan, that's good news about your husband. My favorite weight gainer after an illness is homemade cheesecake.

    Well its been a while since I have hopped on and checked everything out and this thread has grown quite a bit. I love the Hot Pink Morse that is one of the best ones to get if your buying one, just because the color is so rare. Since I have been so sick I have finally finished all of the machines I had a back log on and now I am adding to my collection left and right. I have probably bought 12 to 15 machines all in the 1800's this past 3 months. I need to start to clean them up and add them to my collection but with this heat I can not get out in it or I will break out worse than I am already. Oh well looks like I will be playing in the garage and possibly start back to quilting again.

    Billy are you doing ok dealing with the Pemphigus Vulgaris? Is that still what the Dr's think you have? I really feel for you if that is what you have because I know first hand how nasty that disease can be . . . . we had a dog with that condition. I hope your Dr's are able to manage your symtoms so you are comfortable and able to do the things you want/need to do! Like I said, if you do have Pemphigus Vulgaris, I know what you must be going through - and I really feel for you! None of the auto-immune diseases are much fun!

    Home again and settled back in... Junkin' wasn't particularly productive this trip, but I'm sure loving this 301! Y'all were right, this machine is fast!
    We had a great time with the family, and I always love being near the ocean! Our motel was a block away from the beach, so went down to walk the beach several times and slept with the window open (on the second floor ) and listened to the waves at night.

    Found a few old machines...a Ruby...the machine was in perfect condition, in a parlor cabinet that also looked great, but the lid to the cabinet was gone! I passed at $95... a New Home in a coffin case, no slide plates/shuttle, and no power source for $20...passed on that one too.

    Good trip, and was good to get home!!

    Oh yeah I have Pemphigus Vulgaris and it is far from fun, I am already on my 4th or 5th bout with secondary infections. This time I bumped my elbow on something while I was out and I thought I had put enough rubbing alcohol and neosporin on it but now my arm is swelled twice its size and is red as ever. The doctors tell me that I can die just as easily from the secondary infections as I can from the disease by itself. So I have to be very careful as to what I do now.
