It is going to a daughter that has her whole house done in Americana! This was pieced with a FW in classes then sewn together with my Free treadle at home. I had to attach the binding with my pfaff 1222e because my Davis, Betty, is getting her cabinet re-finished right now!

    Nancy, I love your quilt, thanks for showing that off to us. I love seeing the quilts made from using the vintage machines.
    And I like your new 66!

    Billy, I also need bobbins & feet for my 127 so if you have some for sale let me know too. Thank you, as I wanted to wait until I refinished the cabinet.

    That is a very beautiful sphynx for sure. The decals are really great. The experts on here can tell you exactly what you need for it. You can look at the Singer Sewing Machine site and find the serial number range and it will show you what model you have and the month & year the serial number was issued. Hope that helps.

    Well, I found out that the zipper/cording foot I bought online described as for my 301 doesn't work with it!! The needle hits the foot. What could be causing that?

    Geeze, I think I need to come to Canada to get machines! Those are both great buys, both great machines! I love my Rocketeer and I don't have a 301 YET! And, look at all that you got with them -- again what great buys!

    PS Trish, I also love your green grasshopper -- it looks so nice -- like it is just waiting for someone to sew with her!

    Elizabeth that is a really nice Model 127 Sphinx decaled machine! I am using my Sphinx for piecing right now in my sewing room -- that machine will sew through a jean flat felt seam like butter! It won't skip a stitch! Very powerful machine. Just keep it well oiled and grease the foot pedal on the treadle occasionally!

    Irishrose AND Baysidegal, I can't bring myself to part out my new 66-6, I will just have to find a foot pedal to use with it! I wish it had reverse, not new enough, then I'd put it in a treadle to use! I have enough treadles without reverse now - I don't need another one!

    Mamajack3 did you get your problem with the FW not picking up the bobbin thread fixed? I'd start with changing the needle. Make sure the needle is inserted correctly (flat side to the left) and threaded correctly (right to left) too!
