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.

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

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).
