1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Is anybody familiar with the Singer 6106? on: June 28, 2009 07:01:36 PM
I have experience with many different types of machines, but i'm stumped. Help! I inherited a Singer 6106, along with a few other machines, about ten years ago. It's been sitting in the attic. Now i've just opened it for the first time.

It looks like this:

It's hard to see in these pictures, but there's a horizontal stitch selector dial on top of the machine. Next to each selection are two stitches. The first set is printed in black. I can do these stitches. The other set is in red. How do i do the red stitches?

I found a manual online, but it was extremely generalized, to apply to several models, didn't address this issue!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Fold up mini zines? on: November 03, 2005 07:13:15 AM
ok, i know this is probably so basic as to be embarrassing, but i've been scouring the internet for instructions to cut and fold one page into a little booklet. I know i've seen this before, and it seems like the kind of thing i should be able to just figure out by pondering, but i can't. Please help, craftsters!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Abe Lincoln Pinata on: February 17, 2005 12:34:20 PM
My friends B-Dog and Rami were having a party for Abraham Lincoln's birthday, so i made them a paper mache pinata. Knick is modeling it here:
I used regular white skool glue mixed with water (equal parts) for the paste.
I found it helped to keep extra near by. I covered a "good" ceramic bowl with foil and secured a balloon with duct tape.

Old free weekly newspapers were just the thing. After they were torn into thin strips, the construction process began.
It took a long time, 3 or so days with drying time.     
Eventually the balloon popped on its own. It scared my dog. Madison had to comfort her.
The hat is just carboard covered with newspaper, then black craft paper.
So here's Knick again with the finished project:We filled the head with KitKats, messages, one bullet, Valentines' candy, and confetti prior to attaching the hat. The face is painted- one coat of Liquitex. I spent $12 on the whole thing, including paint brushes. There were enough treats for 30 people.
