 there's a machine that matches the color, and then there's the Knitting Clock (I want that, LOL)
  I'm just thinking, it's been awhile since I've seen that wooden sewing machine, the one you posted MIGHT be it not sure.
  But I do remember I wanted that clock.

For the lovers of Magnolia Pearl, the Rawrags shop on Etsy:
Pina, thanks so much for sharing. The video was really interesting.

I think the machine is very pretty. That being said, I wouldn't buy a machine for "pretty", any more than I'd buy a machine just because it's old and I wouldn't not buy a machine simply because it has plastic parts. My machines are bought for a purpose, not for their appearance. Not saying anything negative about people who collect pretty - we all have different motivations for our interest in sewing machines.

um, I buy machines that are pretty, and have no intention of ever using them (a green elna, very heavy, I'm sure it will NEVER work, a toy antique sewing machine...I never seen one before and it was half price at an antique store...and an adventure buying one from a , ahem drug dealer and car thief. He stole four hundred dollars worth of stuff from our car, DH got it back without getting killed. He said it was his grandma's, who knows? He lured us from the Good Will, LOL, but it was an adventure). Just a note, if we thought he stole it, we would not have bought it. How come thieves are so friendly...and smoke?
  I also buy machines to USE, those are usually from the dealer though, and new.
  And Pina, It never did go on sale, did it?
I was trying to find that sewing machine proto type that I saw a long time was wooden, not sure if it was supposed to work, or just for a contest, but I couldn't find it. I DID find a FOLDABLE (?) sewing machine
 That's definitely a weird one.
  Did her's ever go on the market?

Suzi,does the booklet mention eeny, meeny, miny, moe ?  ;D

At one of our elections we had to place our "secret" ballot into an electronic voting machine.When I fed the machine my ballot the US flag popped up. I turned around and asked people behind me - in which country am I voting ?  The  electronic voting machines were rented from the US,someone forgot to change the flag.  :grinning:

SuziQz,  please summarize and post the 200 page "booklet".  I fear their  goal is to keep us in the dark!  With your legal expertise, in these matters, you can shed light !!

Linda, Suzi started me on Christmas, blame her!!!!!   ;D

I checked my texts, and it is just two events next week, and two this week.   So not as daunting as I was thinking.

Suzi, that's some booklet!!!   But it reminds me to check what I have to decide on as well.   

If I were a real dog person, and really wanted one, and had room (!) I will say good old (actually young!) Jasper is a really cool dog.   He needs young people though, all that energy I know I couldn't keep up with even if I did meet the rest of the criteria ;)

sdBev,  I do not have your IT experience, so can you decipher if this program will work with a Janome machine. I am looking to buy a Janome500 e stand alone embroidery machine. Thanks for your expertise!

I think you just have to experiment by searching for sewing podcasts.  There was one I had for awhile that was considered good (from reviews I read) but I just couldn't get into it so I got rid of it. Unfortunately, I don't remember what it was called and I tried to find it but couldn't.
It is so hard to keep up with you wonderful ladies, so many beautiful dresses, wardrobes for Paris, doll clothes and other fabulous items.

Life has been hectic, but getting back some sort of normality now, some sewing has been going on for sanity but with the 2017 SWAP rules coming out shortly my brain is working overtime on the possibilities.
