    I saw this awhile ago when I was looking to buy a sewing machine. I have a great idea as a business venture, just no money to do it, and haven't really got any sewing skills.

    Actually, they came with the GBC:

    I have a flier somewhere and I'll try to scan it if I could find it.

    Meanwhile, I just won one from Ebay yesterday. The sewing machine doesn't work but its cosmetically sound and I need it for a photo for the next edition of Phoenix.

    If you look up "sewing" in the search you'll fiund mention of this in previous threads...

    Very interesting cart, though. I always thought carts like this should be in the lists, along with stupid dictionaries and things like that, but the DP crew puts only games in there, I believe.

    Looks like manuals for this are available if we can find out the part number.

    Replacement parts list. Looks like there's a factory and a buyer's model number. Weird. The cart isn't on the parts list...

    Lol, sorry for so many posts in a row on this.

    Spoke to a Singer rep and she said they sold out of the cartidges less than 6 months ago. She didn't remember the exact price, but she said they went for somewhere between $60 and $100. Too bad, I was hoping to see how they came packaged by buying one.
