I haven’t updated you on the two spool in a while. But, I’ve been slowly and steadily working on her. I’m not ready to try to quilt with her, even though that’s my eventual intention. But, I have her sewing a good quarter inch seam and so she’s seeing some use.
She is set into my Mom’s cabinet, which has a shelf she can sit on. I need a box to fill in the space at the needle end. The opening in the cabinet is larger than the machine. But, for now, she’s doing some good piecing work.
I painted her decals back in with gold paint pens and added an electric motor. Next is to wax her bed, but I’ve waited. Every so often I find a place I’d like to add some paint and I won’t be able to do that after she’s waxed.
I had to alter a Griest foot for her. She doesn’t take the normal foot. Her needle and her foot post are closer together than other machines. I had to take the Dremel to this foot and extend the opening in the middle so that the needle had room to clear the foot.
I have done a good bit of piecing on her. And, I’m still on my first spool of thread in the bobbin. I think this machine and I are going to get along really well. Just need to finish training her up for the real show.
Be well. Have a great hump day. Lane
