Thank you so much for doing this! I am going to print them out and put them in a binder. It will be a great help.

okay there's still a ton more but I'll have to update later
Well, gee, if you really want to do more work! Looks like you've done plenty already!

This is really great thanks, and more thanks. I'm off now to download and save.

Maybe this is one of those things that should be pinned because there are lots of people interested in it?

Mary, I definitely think it should be pinned. How do we make that happen?

Looks great and similar to the very useful info included in the Bernina Feetures books. Funny thing, I called them recently about a serger table and they were very helpful on the phone. They have a brick & mortar store in the Temecula area (I think).
