If you have a paypal account, I'd be happy to donate a little for you to get a new sewing machine. Such talent NEEDS rewards! I'm sure others might too?Not sure how you could do that in a safe way - editors have any ideas?

Mmm, the 60s and 70s Singers are some of the best machines out there, besides the Featherweight Singers from the 40s (I have one - it so totally rocks). If she's selling patterns, I'd LOVE to get one!

I appreciate the offer! I think Greatfather Winter may have some plans for a finer goblin-engineered sewing machine for me, we'll see.

I got it! A solution to make everyone happy!We donate a fair amount to help Serthida get herr sewing machine... say, what, $40? And as a thank you, she sends us one of these cuddly little buggers out of the kindness of her heart!Eh? Eh?Well, I thought it was a good idea, anyway. :((PS. Bloodhoof represent! /wave from a fellow H-Bloodhoofian).

A goblin-engineered sewing machine? Does it come with free explosives?

Husqavarna Viking or bust.*former cosplay queen*It's almost Christmas and end of year clearance too, so good time to buy one. I got a 1300 retail machine for about 800 and even though it was steep I've never regretted it. I tested many machines before I decided to extend my price range from 250-400 to 500+ and it was definitely for the best. If you're sewing tricky fabrics like leather, fur, etc, and plan to sew for life, do yourself a favor and save up the extra so you never have to buy another machine.

I took a sewing class this year - what an amazing world. Getting the thread onto the bobbin and threading the machine was a major challenge. I decided (sadly) I did not have enough free time to pursue my goal: craft a giraffe print jacket for me. (I'm a guy. They don't make giraffe print jackets. Unless you're a pimp, but thats another story). /salute to you sewers. But really - if you can find a way to share with my your paypal account without me posting my email on here or you doing the same, I'd contribute a small amount to your sewing machine. Great talent needs patrons!

@Snuzzle: "Bloodhoof sucks" (If you read our server forum, you'll get it)@Dez: I hope not, I need all of my fingers not exploded off!@Dawn Moore: I do actually have a Husqvarna Viking 910 serger, but it's no good for detail work like tiny faces and little curves around little paws, fur is still a notoriously difficult fabric to get to behave in a sewing machine. I think we're looking at Pfaff right now, something with a top feed to help me turn corners a bit better.@Matthew: A giraffe print jacket sounds amazing. You should go for it! I hope you give it a hood, so you can give it giraffe "horns" and a nice fluffy mane, too. Maybe even a little giraffe tail. As far as paypal goes, I really appreciate the offer! I've got a Livejournal (username critchicken) and can be privately messaged through there.
