Please Help Me ID this Nelco (and find a manual) by [email protected]
Hello: I bought a used Nelco sewing machine for my 15-year old daughter. She wants to take classes at JoAnn and I thought this might be a good machine to start on. I got it at an auction. While I don't know much about sewing machines in particular, I do know a bit about mechanical things in...

beanies for big heads by darkbeethoven
Hi, I want a beanie. But my head is enormous. I'd like a stylish one, $20 or less, but everytime I go into a store, all I find is those "one size fits all" ones - when they most certainly do not "fit all". So, I thought I'd ask you guys - do you know of any websites with consumer-made or...

Value for used sewing machine by Gemini
I have a Bernina 153 Artista that I've used sporadically over the past 5 years or so. I want to upgrade to a newer machine and it's been suggested that I might do better than blue book value by not trading it in but by selling outright. I have a friend intersted in purchasing, but there are none...

Body abuse in fashion by Betsy Ross
Throughout history, women have had their breasts lifted up, pointed out, pushed down , in, together and apart. Women's waists and hips have been similarly manipulated. With the exception of padding cod pieces, have men EVER been put through so much to artificially change the body shape?

sew seam binding invisibly by kate
How does one do this? Butterick pattern (5588) says to sew 2 inch seam binding invisibly along seam lines. This is odd since there is a lining to this dress. The pattern instruction shows a small piece of seam binding approx. 6" from hem line. I read the instructions on next page and see that it...
