    How neat is this!! I was in CVS and saw a little tiny sewing machine. It has a bobbin and top thread.. has tension control. It can be run with 4 AA batteries.. or wall current. and you can run it by hand or with a foot pedal.
    The machine only weighs a couple of pounds at most. It has a bobbin winder and drop in bobbin.
    I am totally astonished .. but after trying it out I'm going to use it to make a doll quilt and see how it holds up.
    Oh.. and best of all.. it only cost $15.99!!!! go figure!

    Might be a good thing to use for those people who will get Hurricane Irene this weekend!

    My daughter bought one(at CVS) a cpl months ago to take on vacation with her. She wanted to sew in the car. She didn't get to use it much but said it sewed fine.
