    The one I painted was not as good looking as this one- I would have left this one alone. They do turn up- I'm not kidding when I said everyone had one in the 1970's. Laura

    I think I saw one of these tables at the SA last week. I already have one with a narrow opening for my Elna's freearm and another for my serger. The serger one looks like the one Laura painted pink with the larger opening. The serger one fit my 301 quite well before I found a cabinet for her.

    Could you make one? IKEA sells adjustable height legs. Or they have a wood leg kitchen table that's unfinished that I think is pretty inexpensive. Here's where someone cut a hole in a desk for their machine- http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/07/m...wing-desk.html
    not exactly right, but gave me some ideas.....if you cut down the legs of a table, or used adjustable legs, and built a shaped platform to the left, wouldn't that work? ort of like the MUTT, only for electrics? Just a thought. I could be babbling, here. Laura

    I need to dig mine out and see how it works - mine looks like it goes to a free arm machine - it seems like you would want a light weight machine to go in and out of one of them very often.

    Laura,

    Perhaps if I had some room to work and the tools. Right now I have the barest necessities of hand and electrical tools and no room to work at all.

    Miriam, the one I bought in 1973 with my Elna is extremely sturdy. The one bought for the serger in 1991 isn't as good as quality, but it will hold anything I put on it with no vibration.

    Joe it sews great. Nice even stitches and I will use it to piece quilts. With the spool bobbin it will go a long time without changing the bobbin often.

    I finished a quilt!I quilted a giant spider web on it on my Davis VF! There is a little less space under the arm than my 201, but it worked out, and not a single wrinkle on the back. Most of the blocks were from a swap, but I put it together on my 201, whom I call Queen Mary, for some reason. Then, I sewed the binding down with my little Montgomery Wards zig zag. I will NEVER machine sew a binding again! I ended up having to satin stitch it, because I had made so many rumples. It was just to much to unpick it all. I sized this quilt to drape over the back of the couch- Carve a few pumpkins and I am done decorating for Halloween. Laura

    Might it be due to the size of the picture? It's 1980 x <something or other> which is substantial. The quilt pic looks to be sized small. Just a guess.

    Laura,

    When I did this quilt cover for my #2 Singer 66 treadle,

    I started having puckers and crinkles on the binding so I switched to a walking foot.

    Although it doesn't properly fit the feed dogs of the 66 it did help immensely.

    Skip, I so happy that you have finally used that Two Spools. They are wonderful machine to use for piecing.
    Thanks for posting photos. Enjoy!

    Joe- Oh well, just a thought. I'll keep my fingers crossed you find a table. I did notice that they are still sold, such as on Amazon, but imagine they are pricey. Laura
