    I think I'm going nuts!

    Hi, I'm trying to find a thread I saw about two weeks ago. It was on hidden or secret drawers in sewing cabinets. I'm a member of only two sewing forums - this one and the Sewing Pattern Review. I have searched both and can not find that thread anywhere. What makes this extra frustrating is I posted a message to it - so you think I should be able to find it in a search!

    Does anyone know where it is, or if it got deleted?

    No, you are not going nuts. There was a thread on the "Vintage" forum here about the secret drawers. I can't find it either. It maybe that PatriceJ the moderator removed it for some reason. Maybe someone else has ideas on where/how to find it.

    I read it too and found it very interesting. It may have been removed by a member's request -- I recall that a member or two were very unhappy that the "secret" drawers may be revealed on a public forum.

    I found that hilarious and silly. I found pictures of all the secret drawers ever invented for sewing machine cabinets on a Google image search.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I totally agree with Onebyone. Not every machine has a secret drawer any way and so what it it's posted. It's the owner's machine now. She can do with the "secret drawer" what she wants. Keep it a secret or not!

    I saw it too,but where?????

    I thought there was a way of backtracking threads you've written on
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    it's quite a mystery.
    the poster did not receive a move or delete notice.
    i can't find any trace of the thread or any indication that it was either moved or deleted.

    spoooooooky.

    we can only hope he takes the time to post it again.
    then i guess we should all cross our fingers that it doesn't disappear again. LOL
