So glad to find this thread! Over the past few years, I have been "promised" three sewing machines if I wanted them. I just was bitten with the sewing bug, so I'm going to pick up one this weekend...and it is a 1974 or 1975 Kenmore! (My mom has the one in the first picture on this thread...bought it new and still uses it!) I have been lurking on the sewing threads for ideas, so I'll probably be in here asking questions. I haven't sewn a stitch in 15 years, so I'm a re-newbie!
I've used the Bernat Camo, but the color that I used of it wasn't very...camo-ey. There's a couple of colors, though. I made some hats for the boys out of it, and I like that I can throw it in the washer when they get yucky.
