    Very nice cabinet and machine that already comes with a name, Amerikan-or Erika for short. The decals are sweet!

    Janice, I posted this one as a heads up about a month ago. It is local pickup; might be a bit of a drive . I have been watching to see if anyone here calms it.

Also, since it is a Two Spools it goes a very long time before I have to re-wind the bobbin thread spool! The Two Spools, the 15-88 treadle for free motion, and the 319w (in treadle) are my go to treadles now! Of course, I am fickle, because I love all my machines! But, seriously that Two Spools is the greatest piecing machine!

    Nancy, I agree with you about the Two Spools. I wish someone close would go rescue that machine and start using it. They are the best for piecing.

    At this coming March TOGA in Turlock, I'm going to bring my Singer 328k in treadle, and Bernie is planning to bring his Singer 412G in treadle. You should bring your Singer 319w in treadle. It would be interesting to see how differently they all treadle. I'm sure if I treadled your 319, I would then be on the hunt for one afterwards.

    Someone on here posted some great shots of the threading path for the New Home. I think it was Monica, so can you re-post those photos for Randa?
    Nancy
    Nancy, It wasn't I since I don't own a New Home. The threading path that I did was for a National.

    Miriam, When loading picture on the QB, you need to select the "from computer or URL". Did you make sure that you did that and also when loading multiple pictures you need to reset that selection each time. If your size is to large, then QB file will not load image and you will have to resize yours, found somewhere in your computer tools or help.

    I can't seem to find the right buttons to push to get it to resize - I used to do it all the time. I'm missing something I guess.

    Click your photo image on your computer and then click on your tools, somewhere there might be the resize.
    If that doesn't work, I can't help ya. My son is the computer nerd that comes to my rescue when I can't get things to work. He has never read a computer manual. I don't now how he does it. And, I don't remember a computer manual coming with him on the day I gave birth to him.
