I finally finished my bowl. I was in the class you taught in Conroe, TX. I was the one with the 40 year-old Viking machine that was skipping stitches. I never got it to stitch correctly, but I just re-stitched where it was bad and it is fine.
Since my machine would not do the wider zig-zag of the new machines, my bowl is more flexible. Because of that, I was able to shape it a second time and create a "footed" bowl. It was great to meet you and loved the class.
