    Re: Anyone else thought about this?

    I have several vintage singers, including Featherweight, 301, 99K, etc. They all sew beautifully and are solid as a rock. I do use a Brother computerized machine for almost all of my sewing,...

  5. Re: Dorian to hit Atlantic Canada - to go, no go

    Go with your instincts. Stay safe. It may be important for your friend, and I can understand that. However, putting yourself in potential danger to get there, would, I am sure, not be what her...

    Re: My nightmare/ DH Pipedream

    You were so on target with making the drive down there to see the impact of any difficult weather. Glad you did it; sorry if you lost some cash, but better that than a "huge" mistake! No wonder...

    Re: My new vintage Singer 99 (1925)

    Keep an eye out for a Featherweight. Harder and harder to find; lots out on eBay all the time. Prices are down right now. I still have two of the four I had. Sold off two since I really wasn't...

    Re: Layout question

    Love the colors you are using. Both are super, I think blending them would be the best. Layout? I can't decide. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Re: Well traveled, no passport

    This is absolutely funny (or should I say sad)! No wonder their costs go up and up. Sorry, of course, for the delay for you.
  11. Re: looking for a really good tutorial on making a oversized ironing board.
