Thanks Dan, I did learn that and I know I can't make the machine a walking foot. I just thought it was interesting that after I learned that I got the email.
I worked/practiced with the machine more last night. I have a blanket jammed under the treadle and I found that if I used my left foot, I could control the machine much better. Must not be as strong as my right.
My stitches came out much better and I was able to stop at a corner, turn the piece and continue sewing. I turned out passable work, practice pieces of course.
