I got a new sewing machine today. It was listed for 10 dollars! The person selling it, who happened to live just 2 streets away from me, had their renter move out and they left it. So I said I would be over right away. But when I got there she told me they couldn't find the pedal for it. So, even better, they gave it to me for free!
I found a new pedal for it right away on Sewing Parts Online; so for about 30 bucks I got a new-to-me sewing machine, the pedal I needed, plus a set of 15 bobbins. I am more than over the moon, as I thought I would have to spend a ton of money on a new machine. Now I just have to learn to sew!!!
