    Just beautiful Steve. I did cross stitch for many years and I know how much work went into this. Awesome.

    She could actually be called a professional Crossstitcher. She works with a few of the manufacturers and when they have new designs they send them to her, she does them up and sends them back for use as the catalog image.

    She has won a lot of competitions, in two of which they were judging the BACK.....

    I've been told that back in the day it didn't matter how nice the front is, the mark of great needle work was how good the back looks. I never mastered that particular skill.

    Oh, it was only chalk pencil and came right off. Now if I can just find her a treadle cabinet (that I can afford!) we'll be in business!

    I have been on this site for 2 hrs., it is so much information here. I think you all should be paid by the companies
    making all the things needed to make the vintage sewing machine so wonderful. I really do like when I can sit and enjoy looking and reading you input. I am in the middle of trying to decide on which is better for me. A 66 red I
    which I like the looks and the bobbin reg. type. Or the 127 Spinx which is in bad shape, I think. It has that bar ( I think you call it) on the top near the large wheel. Yea you can see I am not to smart on these things. I think it is harder or tricky on the 127 (left to right bobbin - bullet). Both of course treadle machines.

    I think about it & change my mind. it does keep my brain working and learning or as my dr. says Putting a person to sleep so many times surgery, and 50 colon I will say checks ( drinking the ugly stuff and a day of sleep). It is not the best, but you just have to make the best of it, and keep going.
    I am just starting to tell people about it, because it is one thing you can not hide. I am a lucky colon cancer and let's say female cancer - free. If I sound or write odd - tell me - I mix it - and slow down to get one idea at a time. Or spelling is also a problem. I wish I had a dictionary with me all the time, or a photo and name of people, I know well.
    I tell myself it a small thing, I am here, I take care of a lot of people, I enjoy my life and family and you too! I guess I am thinking of Miriam's daughter in law and son.. Let her know you love and don't forget she will get better, but maybe at first needs love and kindness. To keep going and feel good herself. Take care ! Hope this is not wrong or to much, only meant to help and send thoughts of care. I am doing well as I hope you are. Sorry if I not saying this right. Have a great day, I am stilling praying for you and your family Miriam. I hear things are doing better, thank the Lord for that.

    I just got one of these, the serial number i8s 174740, so that means it is before yours, before 1919? wow......its in good shape, not sewing too well yet (very slow) but it will be soon, I am hoping....do you have a manual or know where I can find one?

    My sister found an apparently-forgotten 301A in our late mother's belongings; we didn't even know she owned it. The machine had a bad plug (wiring disconnected) so I replaced this and cleaned everything else up recently. What a nice straight stitch she makes!

    It is a work in progress. It still needs a zz throat plate, the reverse button is still stuck and so is the stitch selector knob. This one has 3 needle settings LRC

    The blue part of the case cleaned beautifully, too. The metal is improved...
