    Well we know what the opossum died of anyway since he ate the 'spinning wire'

    I guess all their sowing was done inside, as the machine "been sitting inside all of its life," as opposed to my machines, which I sit on the porch for Vitamin D once a day. (?!?)

    They definitely did use if for sowing, though - you can still see the potting soil on the motor!

    Or you can invite me, a perfect stranger, into your home instead of at a public place such as a Wal Mart that sells the stuff for under $4.

    I would seriously consider the Paris poster behind the "sowing" machine.

    I bought a sewing machine on a dark side street in the middle of a small town practically in the middle of nowhere once... does that count?

    The lady at the former Singer store here said it's the same thing. WM here sells the Zoom Spout stuff, so did the Singer store. Of course that was before I started shopping at the Bicycle shop for my SM oil...
