Maybe these folks should get together?

Sewing machine as typewriter:




Typewriter as sewing machine (from this auction for a Hermes 3000 -- actually they can't seem to decide *what* it is):

I saw this on ricardo.ch also (our local Swiss auction site, which is woefully lacking in interesting typewriters). A lady had a picture of a Smith Corona under the heading "Machine à coudre", but in the typewriter section. I'm sorry I missed that auction; I would love a Skyriter! You can still see it here: http://www.fr.ricardo.ch/acheter/antiquites-et-arts/appareils-anciens/machines-a-ecrire-anciennes/machine-a-coudre-ancienne-smith-corona/v/an603855660/
