Wow! Bermina makes an excellent sewing machine, though. My mother sewed all of my baby clothes and blankies on a Bermina that had belonged to my grandmother.

Older Brother sewing machines are great. New ones (unless you buy one of the snazzier models) are horrible. I ended up returning mine to the store I purchased it from after using it twice and took...

Read them and, honestly, do not agree with them. I prefer the more "traditional Wicca" authors such as Doreen Valiente and Janet and Stewart Farrar.

Oh gosh, you are absolutely right. Thank you so much for pointing that out. I did know about Andean plying, but I had a brain fart. I've never Andean plied before, so I totally forgot. :wall:
