    Eeee gads, talk about plagiarism. It's funny in one way and pathetic in another.

    Omigosh.

    That is HILARIOUS. I mean, actually Miriam, did you post it yourself as being out of Hennepin? Or did someone actually steal the virtual yardsale? If the latter, I think it is hilarious!

    I hope to see dozens, hundreds of ads for it now. Maybe one in every Springfield in the USA? Mike and Amelia, can the yard sale make it to Australia?

    Go forth, QBers, and multiply this stolen yard sale!

    If Miriam got her $500, the buyer lost his freight cost. He's asking only for purchase price back. Or, did he pick it up in Indianapolis? Sew funny.

    Yes, I just got this machine today. Came from Minneapolis area and I got a great deal on it since it was damaged in shipment. Only $500.

    Miriam made a Crush and Sow, and the sowing worked! They are sprouting up everywhere! Anyone want to join the Avatar Parade, as led by Ron/Vridar?

    I've been gone - went to Nashville... You have been playing behind my back... BA HA HA HA. THIS IS WAY TOO FUNNY - I laughed so hard the tears ran down my legs - by all means feel free to post it all over the place!!! I keep bumping it up in Indy and people keep sending me spam. Crush and Sow! Now I'll have to change the ad so keep on your toes... Yup it could get packed in a simple USPS box and sent for not too much since it is light weight and has parts missing... This has been so much fun. Someone sent an email and said it was just like the one they learned to sew on. Oh and I picked up another Touch and Sew at GW in Nashville. This one works I think so maybe no party with that one.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Since I was born and raised in Hennepin County, MN, I could read that description with my Minnesota accent!

    Avatar Parade

    How come nobody's joining the Crush and Sow Avatar Parade?

    Initiated by Ron/Vridar, coined/enabled by Cecilia... C'mon guys! Make that Crush& Sow your avatar for the week! It's National Crush & Sow Avatar Week! Someone want to start a thread? ;-)
