Very cool! That was definitely meant for you. I think you should fix your wife dinner!!!! I also have wondered that about the stickers on some of the machines that I have gotten. I am hoping they were purchased there and not stuck there when a machine was taken in to be serviced. I have never tried taking them off. I was sewing on a "new" 99K last night and it has one of those stickers. The machine is like new (so is the sticker). I don't think the machine was hardly ever used, if at all. Sewed great though last night for me.
