Not sure about the post title? It will make sense in a minute.
No we didn't get a dog!
I just wanted to show you something on my old machine in case anyone else has a similar machine and attachment.
Meet my trusty old 40 year old Elna. Inherited from my Mum, she used to make my clothes on this, sew uniforms for our school uniform shop and also quilted on it before she bought a fancy wiz bang machine. I do most of my sewing and quilting on this machine, including my Bake Shop quilts so just goes to show you don't have to have all the fancy equipment. Having said that, Mum has just upgraded to a newer, fancier machine and I'm pretty excited to be getting another of her cast off machines TODAY!!!!
Where was I......OK feed dogs. Corrie made mention that older machines can't always lower the feed dogs which is the case with this machine but it does come with this little metal plate that slips over the feed dogs to provide a smooth working surface for free motion quilting.
It just clicks on, the thread pulls up through the hole, put on your darning foot and you are off!
