    sorry, just had to share. Last weekend we went to Yosemite for the first time (I've lived in California almost 40 years)

    We took LOTS of pics but here is one I just felt the need to share. What an amazing day....

    Well, Steve, if you use you imagination it looks like a sewing machine. Beautiful.

    Helen,
    My goodness you have some gorgeous machines. I had to wipe up a big puddle of drool.

    I lived in California for about 20 years and never got to go to Yosemite.

    my impromptu survey so far... 24 people surveyed who currently live in California, 6 have been to Yosemite.... (not counting the three of us who went this last weekend (2 visited BEFORE they moved here. lol)

    Amazing the number of folks who have never been there.

    we often miss the treasures that are close by. Grass is greener... I was born in San Jose, have a pic of me there as a wee tike. Moved out from the bay in '86 to the Sierras. Hiked, backpaced, camped, kayaked and canoed a lot thete. I miss high granite. Go thru Tuolumne Meadows and out the back gate to 395. It's reslly beatiful. Check out ghost towns from the gold and silver rushes.

    so, to bring this back to sewing machines....

    When you see "Industrial" in an ad for a sewing machine remember...THIS is real Singer Industrial. (241-12)

    [Backstory - I busted my last original needle for my 29-4, I am not ready with the Politype patcher for a working project, and I NEEDED to finish stitching up some leather bits for the Gorget (neck armor, pronounced like "Gore-shay") because the customer was leaving in the morning for Spain to fight in it]

    I asked Heather if she would rather hand stitch with the sinew or give the 241 a try. The leather involved is 8oz split cowhide, so it would mean hemming and attaching pieces, max 2 layers. She said, let's give the beast a try. (not her, the machine)

    Yes, but delayed 1 year. Our Trip to Yosemite was so amazing Heather asked to put it off one year so we can make reservations (1 year advanced required) and have everything there. Being the good future husband, I said "yes dear"
