I was just talking to two sewing coworkers about this (both made their own wedding dresses!). They felt that rather than buying a cheaper new one (for simple things), a better way to go would be to buy a nice used one on Craigslist. Like, better to buy one that retailed for $200 (and I know, that's no fancy sewing machine, but you also can get them for $100 or less) or more, and get it used, than to get that $100 at Target brand new.
FWIW.
I just want a sewing machine for simple things: Hemming pants, making pillows/mending pillow cases (I have some vintage ones from estate sales), making simple curtains, etc.
The prices have come down on some good ones. I've read up and while Singer has the name, Brother seems to have more satisfied customers. I've heard Juki is a really good machine but I think Brother will be just fine for me.

While this probably would do fine for now: http://www.amazon.com/Brother-Project-CE7070P...

There's so many others out there.

A sewer friend said Kenmore is a reliable brand, but I've heard the same about Singer and Brother, too. Do you know how to sew? I don't - I took classes through community ed, but was working on my gifted 1940s machine (which ended up on fire and throw away) and mistakenly chose a too-difficult pattern (too many pieces, although it was just PJs).

I'm willing to try again.

Next time we're all fighting here, someone needs to pull a Tonka (like his "name a band and the top 5 songs you'd play....").

in the 92 GnR World Tour, Axl used lyrics for other songs sort of as intros to GnR songs. Only Women Bleed was one of them. I'd nver heard it. Didn't know it was from some other song. First time I ever heard it...was at a hole n the wall strip club .

I have three BH CDs (The one with "burn one down" and then a double CD set from later years).

Question: I've heard that there's a PJ song that has different lyrics every time they sing it. Have you heard of this?

I admit that I love yellow ledbetter -- more for the guitar playing than anything. I just like how it sounds.

Ah, yes. Burn One Down. I forgot my audience. I would definitely play that for the NORML crowd. Great song.

Yellow Ledbetter. Its not so much that the lyics are different every time, but it kinda changes a little depending on the night. I can best describe it as to say he's probably got several differnt verses that fit (and are hard to understand what he's saying anyway) and there's no telling how the sone will go on a given night.

One thing that I really like in a musician, is when they play with other people. Showing up on stage with some other band, just for a song or 2. Un-announced. That shit can turn a decent set into a great show.

I like that whole CD (Fight for your Mind - the name escaped me for a bit there). but that song was the first pro-pot song that came from a nontypical stoner for me.

Yellow Ledbetter -- okay, cool. It's a gorgeous song.

Or it could just be that he mumbles thru it so much that it just sounds different.

Yes! After the fight has had a chance to breathe, though.

My dinner: vegetable soup, PB&J sandwich, hard boiled egg, wine. And I ran to the corner store a little while ago and paid almost $4 for a half gallon of milk so I can have hot chocolate later. It's COLD here today.

A friend in S FL said there's been a cold snap.

It got down to about 8 here last night. I have a chicken pot pie in the oven. First food in 24 hours.
