A little while ago on Freecycle, a wonderful person gave me this quilting frame. I gave it to my friend Rhoda, the binding beast!
She didn't have a sewing machine that would work for her. So on yesterday I stopped at the local thrift store and found a machine for $11. It is an old Kenmore. I love my 2 Kenmore machines and this one is no different. We spent about an hour and a half today, taking the feed dogs out, working on the tension, figure out how to thread it and practicing. Rhoda is now a quilter! I need to find her a darning/quilting foot for the machine and get her some sewing machine oil and give her some of my needles and she needs to wind some bobbins, but she is ready to practice, practice, practice! We have one more quilter in our group :)
