I love the bag and the outer fabric. I shall also be added to the list of those requesting where I could find that fabric!

I love the style and compact-friendly feeling I get from your purse. I especially love the idea of a zipper because coins can always be very important! You never know when the vending machine will be supplying your next lunch.

How about a tutorial like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52143.0  ? If you don't want to you could choose a heavy-weight fabric so that interfacing is not necessary and skip the lining part (if you do not want to do more sewing or like me am just lazy  Tongue).

A mouse pad has not worked for me, but this could probably be because the mouse pad I tried using had too smooth of a top. I have used a rubber-type mat (thats used to be put under carpets to prevent carpets from slipping) that I cut down to a smaller piece.

I had one like that, and it was really pretty easy.  The sewing machine was screwed to a flap on one side (that's usually what holds it in place when you drop it down into the table and close it up).  Undoing the two old screws was really the only hard part, because they were old and a bit tough to turn.  You may need someone to help you hold the machine while you unscrew.

My problem is, what do you put the machine in once you have it out of the table?  I haven't solved that problem yet, but then I haven't tried very hard.

Thank you, I did not know that is how it was attached to the table. Would you mind telling me what type of screw it was that you used for detaching the sewing machine. I am pretty sure I would have to bring the screwdrivers myself when I go to get the machine. In terms of putting the machine somewhere I have seen on eBay people selling sewing machine bases (but usually for 50 or more dollars) and I am hoping to find a local store that sells it for cheaper. Here is a link to one on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.ca/Solid-BLACK-WALNUT-Sewing-Machine-Base-Full-Sized_W0QQitemZ380099021372QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item380099021372&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72:1215|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318

Another question I have is how can I make sure the machine is in proper condition for its travel home. I will be taking the bus to pick it up and to bring it home so I am assuming a large canvas bag would be helpful. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi there, I wondering if anyone knew how to detach a sewing machine that is attached to a table? I am buying the sewing machine solely and the seller said that if I could detach it from the table then I could just buy the sewing machine itself (I do not have the space for the table) . Thank you!

Here is the machine from the ads:

Thank you both for your help! I will make sure to test it out and check out various part of the machine before I buy it.
20  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Crowne + White Sewing Machine? on: December 22, 2008 07:01:08 PM
Hi there, I was wondering if anyone here knew of a sewing machine brand named Crowne? I believe it may just be a clone but I am not sure what model or even brand of sewing machine it is a clone of. I am thinking of buying the machine but I can not find any information on it! Thank you!


Also, I was wondering if anyone could identify this White model? It is a really bad picture however that was all that is given in the ad.
