Internet searches are an interesting thing.  I've had three people contact me in the last two weeks after finding me on the Internet.  I don't have a web site but my company name comes up because it appears in the business directories (which I didn't sign up for) and the white pages online.

I search on my name periodically but since I live a less active life than some others, outside of winning a furniture design contest, the other references are just for official notices like funerals and such. 

However, I do query my daughters name as well just to find out what's out there under her and as a form of protection.  She's sixteen and as computer literate as most teenagers as well as innocent to the ways of the world.

I quit using Google a while back and use Bing as my search engine now.  I like the way it works better than Google or some of the others I've tried.

When I took my first upholstery class over 25 years ago they taught us the blind stitching method of connecting backs.  It is still my preferred way of connecting back panels.  With that said, my least favorite to blind stitch are the micro suedes.  They produce so much resistance to the needle that my fingers are sore for weeks!   :P

I have this same basic machine (mines under the Chandler name but same model).  It is the first machine I bought and it was about twenty years old when I got it.  You can still get parts fairly easily. 

There are a few hints that are helpful, unfortunately I learned them after I had been sewing for awhile.  The main thing it to hold the thread before you start to sew, otherwise you end up with a big ball of thread and a jambed hook.   The other thing is it has a slip clutch so if it jambs you have to reset the drive shaft (right term?) so the little ball shows up in the hole.  Not familiar with the correct terms just know what I have to do to fix them.

Anyway,  I've had a great experience with my machine after 5 years of use.
