Totally Off-Topic...

But relevant if you've been following my saga with the smoking downstairs neighbor!

I'm going to have to move as soon as I can get my act together. Which won't be for another month, and possibly more, but I've got to get working on clearing out clutter and divesting myself of "stuff." Which brings us to my off-topic TOPIC!

Are you a sewist? Interested in a serger? I have one of these with the 7 feet, a video to learn to use it, and the workbook, too. In addition, I have lots of cones (at least 50) of a huge variety of colors in serger thread, most never opened, which I'll toss into the mix. The serger works beautifully. I've used it exactly twice. Someone said, "it'll make the work you do on your bags so much easier." Ummm. No. It doesn't relate to the type of sewing I do. Hard to explain that. But sergers (if you don't know) sew beautiful overlocked seams, trimming the edge as it goes. That's great if you're making clothes. Especially if you're using stretchy fabrics. I don't make clothes, and I don't use stretchy fabrics. And I use flat-felled seams, not overlocked, just to get technical and all that! :)

So...the serger, while a wonderful addition to most people's sewing rooms, is pretty much a dinosaur in mine.

(Yes, I have a tendency to leap before I look...but, if you need a good workhorse serger, then you'll be able to benefit from my impetuousness!)

If you're interested, email me at siameezercat AT gmail DOT com. If you live a long way from Roanoke VA, we'll have to talk shipping, too. I have the original box that it came to me in, so I can pack it just as well as the original shipper did.

Oh...and here's a photo of it, with my sewing and knitting supervisor checking it out right after it arrived...it looks just the same today (so does The Meezer!). I wish that corner of my sewing room were as neat as that still, tho'!

You do WHAT with this?...The Meezer

So sorry to hear that you have to move - I wish there was something else to be done!

Too bad you have to move, but I hope you find a place soon.

Nice serger, too, hope it finds a good home.

Huh... Wonder if we have the same downstairs neighbor? But then we'd probably have to at least live in the same state! :-) Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Hope you find a home for the serger... I used to have evil smoking downstairs neighbors. Fortunately they moved, since I own my place!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
