My Locale Pacific NW
About Me Practically "new" to hiking the Pacific NW after slaving at a dead end job for 7 years. Retirement is nice, though I don't feel old and gray. Nice to have more time to plan trips and leave on a weekday! And yes, I like to MYOG.

Suggestions for sewing table?
I have lately acquired a "new" sewing machine, a Pfaff 130 that came without a case. It likely came out of someone's table--it has a knee activated pedal. Without putting an excess ...
