[quote=SewExtremeDoug, you will love cranking out on your FW. I have had mine for a short while. I have quilted on it and have made a size 3 dress for GD and an apron with my GS. It is sewwww great for traveling too ;-) :!:[/quote]
Thank you SewExtreme: I'm really looking forward to it. I've often wondered how to take my machine with me as I travel frequently. Now I have a way!! Woo Hoo!! I'm really looking forward to it.

Here I am to the Rescue!!!!

Lets see if it is here:

Billy: Did you see the pics of my new baby? I'm anxious to hear what you think. I also posted a pic of the fabric I sewed on so you can see what I was talking about yesterday. Any new advise or stick with what you said. I haven't had a chance to tinker with her yet today other than to take her out and take her pictures.

That 99k looks just like mine, except mine is in better condition.[/quote]

How beautiful yours is. Did you pay $99,999.99 for it :shock: ;-)

Darcene,
The needle goes in with the flat to the right and it threads left to right.

Sharon,

Thank you for the heads up about the needle and thread in this machine....this is the opposite of my FWs so I will need to keep this in mind when I start sewing with it....
