1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / My sweet, soon to be mother in law even though she doesnt know it on: August 15, 2007 10:23:05 AM
ok Follow me if you can

My boyfriend/(secret) financ's  mother gave me a few boxes of beads.
By few I mean 3 xerox paper boxes full c/e seed beads, plastic beads, pearls, metal bits and for some reason plastic  babys.

After sorting and condensing the boxes, i estimate i have about 40 to 50 pounds of beads.

And I am not a beader. I dont even wear  beaded jewelry I wear simple metal jewelry.

Would It be worth the time and effort to post the beads and resell them, or should I just throw them out?

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Need help Identifying Machine on: May 30, 2007 07:27:27 PM
A while ago I was in a car crash and all of my things were spewed all over the high way. Everything was collected except for a few sewing books and my sewing machine. My sewing machine was totally destroyed beyond recolonization.

the crash was several months ago, and ive been borrowing sewing machines from my family since then. But what I really want/need is a another sewing machine like my old one. But I cant remember the Model number or even the company.

heres what I do remember:

~Had 3 settings, a straight stitch, a longer straight stitch and a zig zag stich.
~White case but a brown plastic strip where you identified the stitch setting
~Made of metal, but was not cast iron (might have been made of aluminum mixture because it sure as hell  crushed easily under a truck. But it was still significantly heavy)
~Electric but had hand crank
~Bottom loading Bobbin
~was possibility a singer?
~was most likely  from the 1960's to 1970's
Here is a really awful picture of my old sewing machine when it was back at my dorm room. Hence the ramen cup near it. Tongue

any help identifying the machine would be greatly appreciated.
