Portable Sewing Machine - Fashion Mate by Singer @ 1970’s - with button whole attachment - $100


The original owner said she saved money from her first job to purchase this sewing machine as a young adult from the Singer shop in downtown Ann Arbor during her lunch break.  She said she loved using it had it serviced by a Singer repair tech just before selling it to me several years ago.  I bought it to zig-zag the edges of my weaving and it worked well.  As fun as zig-zag is, I like to sew by hand, thus the sewing machine is lonely and wants to be happily used.  You could be that person.

Located in Ann Arbor, MI - Pick up only

We have Free Kenaf Fiber we would like to share with MLH members:


Like the title says, if  anyone in MLH is interested, we would like to send some Kenaf fiber your way completely free of charge. 
We are fiber processors, and we want to share Kenaf fiber with as many people as possible, as it's an amazing plant for the world but is being underutilized.  It's very similar to hemp & flax as they are all bast fiber crops.   If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, via email or phone
