It's a treasure and I recently ran across another black, long bed 301 that I just had to have. I also have a featherweight but prefer the workhorse 301. It's also very easy to travel with.
  2. All this math talk has made me chuckle. I am horrible at math, always have been. I flunked high school algebra. My sister on the other hand has excelled, she's been a high school math teacher for 35 years. She has never understood my struggle.

Right now his job has provided a home for us that has a huge finished basement (big enough for a long arm). My husband is supportive of me getting a long arm, but he doesn't want me to get one until we move. He is afraid it will be too hard to move. I'm hoping y
  6. Love your quilting! I'm currently working on 2 twin sized Fancy Forest for my granddaughters in purple, teal & gray. I may be stealing your quilting idea. Love it! Thanks for sharing!
  7. Hi! I've been a lurker here for some time, but had to chime in here. Yes, I agree with everyone else here....take the stove! My dear sweet mother-in-law passed away a couple years ago. A few years before she passed, my husband & I were at her house visiting. After lunch, she & I were doing the dishes and she told me after she passed she wanted us to have a set of silverware that had been passed down in my husbands family. I knew nothing of this silverware & for all I knew it was nothing of real value. She also told my husband of her wishes and he dismissed it, but did tell her if
