    a few years ago, I found one at a garage sale for $15. The grandmother used it once and had no more need of it. I sold it on ebay for $90. Now I wish I had kept it but i do have way too many crafts. It is all the knowledge of what the item is that locates these interesting items.

    I bought a new one years ago and payed the big bucks. Several months ago I bought another at an auction for $5.00. No one else knew what it was.
    Even though I had three boys, I've smocked many dresses and doll dresses to match for nieces, granddaughters, Christmas ornaments and Easter egss. Love doing it as an in the car project.

    I have one that my neighbor got for me about 12 yrs ago. The first thing I made on it was a dress for her granddaughter. Then my honey made a wooden holder for it for me. It sits on top of the holder, basically a board the machine is mounted to that can come off the main part of the holder. Inside are metal rods that hold spools of thread. This way I can have all the thread right there feeding into the machine with no troubles. Should dig it out and use it again, but just no time right now.
