    I will be. Photos for sure. 13 hour drive each way....... yikes..

    I am SO looking forward to seeing this machine make a stitch. It does the "Grover & Baker Stitch" which is a double chainstitch.

    That would be something to raise the "Grover & Baker Stitch" from the dead. Can't wait to see an actual picture.
