    It looks like it has been taken care of, too!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Good eye Leon. It is a 127. I was having trouble uploading and didn't check my typing. If a moderator could change that 66 to 127 I would appreciate it.

    The stop motion screw is different on this machine. It works the same, it has a set screw to keep it from coming off, but its not a solid nickel plated peace. Im wondering if it had a decorative cap that is now missing.
