Ahh, that makes more sense. :-) Google had no clue......
It looks like Spokane is a good (buyer's) market for interesting sewing machines at reasonable prices -- except of course FWs......

I have yet to try one out (but won't ever "need" one). However, it looks like we'll soon get to try our hand at getting one unstuck.

I think the machine needs more than a tune up...

$300 for a wedding and various living arrangements, whatever that means.

They could barely buy a tank of gas for what that machine is worth, so they would probably have to honeymoon in Terre Haute.

Well if they pick road side weeds for the bride's bouquet and not get too fussy over clothes, maybe have baloney sandwiches for the meal, they could pay the JP a couple bucks, get a gallon of gas and camp in the WM parking lot - yup they could honeymoon in Terre Haute... But then it probably isn't uncommon in Bloomington anyway. Likely they won't care if they run out of gas...

Perhaps running out of gas is what got them in this predicament.

This White has a different shape - haven't seen one with that kind of handle before - LOL!! - the shape reminds me of one of those big flashlights with the large handle on top that have the large 12v or 18v batteries - price is too high for me though!

I agree the price is too high but they know what they've got. The fair lady is one of the most sought after Whites.
