I wouldn't bother shipping a machine from the '90s.  Older machines (to mid-'80s) had metal parts and gears, and last forever.  Newer machines, especially cheap ones from big box stores (hint hint) have nylon or plastic parts that literally crumble in a few years.

Check Project Gutenburg for free books on all kinds of subjects.  Most books are from before 1923, a magic year for copyright.  http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/subject/11827

Make sure the cat has his own space and toys, but pretend you don't want him to use them.  When he's lying in the middle of the fabric you're trying to cut out, go play with his toys until he comes over to supervise.

If you have a wood closet door, attach a pegboard to the inside of it. That way you can hang your sewing tools up when you're not using them and shut the door. If the cat can't see them, it can't get to them and in the process get run the risk of getting hurt. I have a cat who ignores me and follows my granddaughter so I don't have this problem. But just in case when I'm done for the day,I make sure everything is put up. Clear plastic bins with the snap-on lids are great! They come in all sizes for whatever use you need and you can see what you have inside.
