    that's OK imitation is the best form of flattery.

    great sewing machine I don't have anything like that I have a refurbished that I bought at Overstock.com for $35. but it works i guess that is all the matters. Your machine will last forever, now you got your wish of a sewing machine for your dorm. It is posted on the thread asking for help for you who sent it, so it is no mystery go check it out. You have been blessed.

    WOW!! This forum just amazes me.. I had nothing to do with this.. however I felt that I should tell all of you here that the kindness, the generosity, the helpful people who are on this forum is spectacular.. not to mention the talent.. that is just incredible.. It warms the heart to know that this kind of generosity and kindness is still around, and here more than I would have ever thought possible.. It touches the soul and warms the heart to see.. Congrats on your new Machine and other goodies Alu_rathbone and Thank you Memathomas for showing such generosity and warmth... Many blessing to all..

    I have a brother similar and love it. Happy sewing sweety and don't forget to share the pics with us. Love seeing another generation of quilters. Both my daughters started sewing this year...one is 31 and the other 36. Warmed my heart as I'd just about given up hope. V

    Congratulations kiddo.

    Wow! I am so glad I found this board and all of the great people on it. It is amazing to see how much you all reach out to help each other. It is so hard to find that in today's world and to see so much of it in one place almost makes me want to cry from joy. (Ok so maybe I did a little.) I am new here but can't wait to get to know you all better. You are all great!!!

    SO I recieved a wonderful package today from forrest hobbit. She send a lovely storage box that says "Follow The Dream In Your Heart." and she included four cute pieces of Fabric, two with horses, one with cactus's and one with lizards... oh! And a fifth one with stars (I think they're stars.) Also in the box: Rotary Cutter, Rotary blades, fabric eraser, fabric glue, a pad of paper for memo's or quick notes, quilting and unversal needles, a little chick, vanilla cupcake candle, some lindt chocolate balls (or truffles) and a pink scissors pen thing.

    Thank you! I loved the gift!!! I ate all the chocolates already... I love chocolate, I'm going to take a photo of this and other things a.s.a.p.
