I need a manual for an Necchi Alco a709-5 by Angela Lowry
I found a portable Necchi Alco a709-5 machine but not familiar with this machine. I fix donated machines to give to young or needy sewers. Mostly I have stuck to Singers but this was a curbside find in a case with cords, bobbin, and looks fine. I just need to oil her and find some papers to...

Little Foot foundation packets by Ginger in CA[_2_]
Wondering if anyone has used them before? Wondering of anyone has a Hunter's Star packet in their stash they no longer want and would consider rehoming it? Have a peace-filled/piece-filled day, Ginger in CA ]

Fall Wall Hanging Done by [email protected]
My fall flowers wall hanging is done. It came out pretty good but was a little disappointed because I made the leaves a little bigger than neccessary for the size of flowers used. One stem was too long, so I added two more leaves which fixed that problem. If you don't see me post for a...

Rich vs. poor by Brian[_3_]
I have been rereading the book "Quilts/their story and how to make them" that I talked about in my recent post, or at least the history portion, as I find that part very interesting. One thing that it doesn't talk about directly, but is sort of alluded to in several places is how...

Well dear friends it looks as if I shall be losing you. My ISP have said they are dropping Usenet in 5 days time. I asked them if they were dropping the amount I pay since I am losing part of the service. Alas I did not get a reply. My son is also with the same provider and is looking at other...

Quilting nightmare -- literally by Julia in MN[_5_]
A few nights ago, I dreamed that I had arrived at a quilting retreat at a location about 3 hours from where I live. After I got there, I realized that I had the patterns for the projects I wanted to work on, but I had left the fabric and my sewing machine at home. I had to turn around and go...

Finally the Flower Garden Quilt Top by [email protected]
This quilt top is from "The Quilter Magazine" year 2013. I have already cut out the 30 sets of pieces that make up the quilt top. Yesterday I started sewing the blocks to gather. This is a challenge for me because there are 12 half squares in each block, two different sizes. Progress is slow...
