Getting old machine out of the shed by SteveB[_3_]
I bought a used 1957 Singer 111 w 155 about a year ago to do some canvas awning work. It's time to get it out and see if and how it works. I downloaded the manual, crude as it did come across. Anyone know where I can get a really clear one? What would be a good combination of thread, needle,...

Canvas and other awning ideas by SteveB[_3_]

Velvet - The Fabric Of Fall by [email protected]
The history of velvet is somewhat fuzzy, but the first English reference to it was in 1278, when a king's tailor purchased the fabric in Paris for the kings bed. More than 700 years later you don't have to be a king to afford to wear velvet. You're seeing it everywhere, in every shade. Carefully...
