    Hmmmm, I do know what you mean about the small house. We measured the top of our house one time, 20x30 feet and did a rough calculation. It comes to what .... 600 sq ft? Our basement is the same dimensions so on paper that gives us 1200 sq ft. But that is totally inaccurate because there is the internal walls, and other obstructions. Stairwell, closets, etc. I figure, SWAG really, that we might have 700 or 800 sq ft useable space.
    In that we have all our sewing machines (40+), fabric, other stuff, clothing, etcs. We can't move one thing without having to move another.

    So, since you are a certified sewing machine mechanic I just might bug you with a question or two in a day or so if you don't mind.

    my mother mostly shopped Sears and Wards for everything for the house. When Wards closed I was glad she was not around to see it. Sears doesn't even carry clocks now, decorative or alarm. I guess everyone has raido clocks or thier trusty cell phones to get the time. I have a wall clock in every room. casll me old fashion or too stuborn to move whole-heartedly into the new tech world.

    LOL, do you ladies remember page 604 of the Sears catalog, back in the mid 70's? (Can't remember the exact year.)

    Was that the undergarment section?

    I have a clock in every room to. The are all from 1800 to 1890 and have to be round every week and some need daily winding. These old clocks are build like the vintage machines they just go forever with just a little oil.
