My name is Christine and I am addicted to bag making!
Interests: Now that is a good question! Sewing (surprise surprise!), mainly bags and more bags however I do like making an occasional collector teddy bear (OK so I once did that full time BUT the bags took over! LOL) I also love cats and dogs and all sorts of wonderful critters. COOKING and housework are NOT my favourite pass times however and I would MUCH rather be making a bag! I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful children.....oh and sometimes even hubby too! I like to laugh so I love to watch a good comedy movie and I like to watch some drama, scary and love stories too! Oh what the heck....I like a lot of things!

I am in Australia so I can't say for sure what the situation is in the States however here where I purchased my machine, they assured me that the parts in the Zoje are interchangeable with other common brands and not a problem....I have not had a problem where I have needed a part so I can't say for sure what will happen if that situation actually does eventuate. LOL Where did the people you are considering buying from, purchase this machine?....I am assuming someone must deal in them over there since they have one .....or did they import it themselves?
