We can't be in the tapestry quarter and not have a sewing machine in use with its own Tool wiki page, induction system and a https://hackaday.com/2017/05/23/the-textile-bench/ .

I threw away an old one in frustration last year, and would like to get one that works and doesn't jam up continuously. I know someone who tried out many brands and noticed that Bernina stood out. Of course it is the most expensive.

I wouldn't complain if one of these fell off the back of a truck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XiVyakHzY8

We have at least one sewing machine already. It is hidden behind a load of other stuff in the storeroom in Dinky though.

I'm pretty sure we've got one normal and one overlocker. I've changed the title of this issue to documenting what we've got. It would be handy to have at least one of them set up somewhere in the new space so they don't get similarly forgotten about.

Experimenting with "Room: specialized area" label -- eg place to pool and store and catalogue lots of general purpose materials supplies, like zips, velcro, neoprene, fleece.

I'll go try and dig out the machines and log what they are.
