Re: Best Value Sewing Machine?
+1 for used. Check thrift stores/craigslist/garage sales. If you can find an old Pfaff/Singer (esp 401a/503/etc) go that route. Much higher quality than most of the new ones. If you need it rig...

Re: Re: $200 for a Camera

Re: thanks
I'd second Dave's Needles rec, but if that's out of the question, your options are kinda limited. Island in the Sky has a couple options, maybe exploring the forks of Lost Spring Canyo...
