It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
My wife and I dwell part time in the "wilderness" and she does become contentious when my photos have blown highlights.

Goog thing she doesn't become angry, then.

She only dislikes the blown highlights. No anger, just irritation that I did not foresee the problem or put on a circular polarizer!

Overlock means serger basically. They are very popular but I won't use one myself. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to sewing machines. Simple stitches, no computer, and no sergers, or embroidery machines, ever. Too complicated. I still prefer regular/hand finishing and hand embroidery. I sew on a simple but very good non-computerized Janome/New Home most of the time, unless I'm into going retro for a while and sewing on my old cast iron Singer.

I have all the reasons I need for not buying a K-3. For now.

But can someone please tell me why I don't want to buy a FA31?

The K200/2.5 I talked about earlier has been sold now, so I'm safe there! He still has a A*200/2.8, though - for the same price as the FA31 in question.

With all this pressure there is no way I can get a K-3!

Thanks magkelly ... My wife used the term "serger" once or twice, but as usual, I did not catch on.

I should introduce you to my wife ... then there might be enough "home budget" left over to get a K-3 .... NAHHHH !!!

(Just kiding folks ... about the K-3 acquisition, that is ... J )

Well, that does it. The K-3 can't even overlock. No way I'll buy one then.

Ah, now I understand overlock. I used to commission serging of area rugs made of custom carpet. I have an area rug done on forest green with an inset border of embroidery showing a scene of reindeers leaping. My wife has me drag it out during Christmas and put it under the dining room table. I always used "Bob's Binding and Serging," but never understood the term before your post.

One of the strange recipes I was charged with baking while a superintendent of construction on very large shacks.

Sail you not near the rocky coast of Hocir lest Peisinoe, Aglaope, and Thelxiepeia should call to you.

Yeah, it was a real disappointment when I found you can't program the green button to overlocking. Such an oversight. I'm shocked.

Is the FA 31 pre-hociR? If so, no problem. You will still be admitted to this Thread.
