I felt like a loser trying to figure out how to use the Euro-Pro Dressmaker 998B Sewing machine! I am very old, and I do not have a life, so I wanted something to fill it.
It took me away from more important things, like looking for a date on the internet. I am available and have this stupid sewing machine to prove it. (read more)
