[info] I tried sewing a long, long time ago.  My grandma told me in so many words, that sewing is just not my gift.  She was right.  Not only is it not my thing, I find it kind of frustrating.  I bought this machine to sew paper in an abstract way for crafts.  I simply don’t have time to do that.  If I ever get time, I’ll buy another machine at a thrift store or I’ll borrow one.  I have a lot of sewing friends.
