    Here comes the bride!

    So, looks like I've just purchased my first clone! .... for 99c.

    I have to get it sent from interstate but I think the unique decals make it worthwhile. Turns out the seller said he brought it with him from Greece! He had a gypsy friend there who found it somewhere and gave it to him. Not entirely sure why it's missing so many parts. I presume it was like that since he got it... and I'm hoping that they will be easy to replace.

    Anyway, it's fun to look at! I make wedding dresses so it's a particularly fun machine for me to own and display

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have to thank Mike for making me buy it at the last second. Sometimes it's good to have an enabler

    Both our partners would disagree with every part of that
    I did try unsuccessfully to try and get you to buy that VS2 last weekend so you owed me a purchase
