Our CRAFT friend Jenine who makes the coolest glass bead jewelry gives us a heads up about a super cool sale that’s happening this weekend with amazing deals on sewing machines. Thanks Jenine!

My friend Phil had a company that made petticoats and square dance costumes for over 30 years. His wife of 58 years passed away recently, and Phil wants to sell all of the stuff in his house.
