Thrift Sewing Machines
I've looked for sewing supplies at thrift stores before, but never once thought to look for machines. Will keep my eyes open from now on. It may not be the brightest idea to buy a sewing machine without knowing why the original owner abandoned it. What if the tension was irreparable and it's mother kicked it to the curb in frustration?! I like to imagine this baby was purchased for some girl by a loving family member, used once or twice throughout college, and then given away to make room in a closet somewhere. Or maybe it was owned by some scrapbooker who bought it in the spirit of crafting (scrapbooking can do that to ya), and then realized sewing is really not her thing...
Anyway, the jury is still out on whether or not I'll keep it, or pass it on to someone who needs it more than I do.
