    I managed to get a back sewn onto my needlepoint. It's pretty comfortable to lean against sideways. It's kinda thick so not too comfortable behind the back. 158135

    I miscounted by one thread on my linen band sampler so I had to tear a small section of stitching out. Somehow I manage to cut a hole in the sampler but fortunately I had read about how you can...

    Re: Vintage Elna Machine question

    Elna's are quality machines. Enter the model number on eBay with "used elna machine" to do a better search but in general they are at least 100 bucks there.
