Looking for info for an old Singer industrial sewing machine by [email protected]
I recently rescued a Singer 188k industrial sewing machine. I believe it is meant for leather and the owners manual is dated 1963.

Alan says I gotta tell you! by Kate Dicey
After many hours slaving over a hot computer, and nailing our ISP to the phone, the revamped web site is up and running. Some projects have gone, and lots are now reduced to pictures in a gallery. This has allowed me to get several new things up on the costume front: The timex French Hood: this...

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...
