Got to laugh!
Was shopping on Ebay for a walking foot for the Bernina 930, when I
spotted an auction for a sewing machine with less than 3 minutes
remaining. The minimum bid I could make was $26.99; the machine was
part of an estate sale, condition unknown but by its appearance was OK
and it looked only gently used.
Just for laughs, I bid the $26.99. There was only 20 seconds left in
the auction when I placed the bid, and doggone if I didn't win it!
Suddenly I'm the owner of an almost-new Kenmore 385.15510200! Told my
wife what I'd done (she was out on errands) and she just about wet
herself laughing. It's not like I *need* another machine, for Heaven's
sake, but if it's in good condition, I think I just scored a thrift
shop bargain. Kit contains the SM, foot control and manual, and maybe
a few bobbins or some such. Maybe one of the GDaughters will take up
sewing..... stranger things have happened.
Anyone familiar with the Kenmore 385? Seems to be an entry level SM,
with some 40 stitches built in.
Wife says (only half jokingly)that we need to set up a sewing room,
maybe by building an extension to our master bedroom.
Alex, whose stable is now up to 3 machines!
Taxation *with* representation ain't so hot either!
