    Create and Craft TV launch Exclusive sewing machine range with Simplicity

    Simplicity sewing pattern devotees are in for a treat with the launch of a new line of Simplicity sewing machines, in an exclusive partnership with Create and Craft.

    Both models are stunning to look at with their simple yet contemporary red dot design motifs and silver control panels, set on the crisp white machine body. The models include the Simplicity Satin 197, a high end, fully computerised machine in a silver finish and the Simplicity Silk 403, a top of the range sewing and embroidery machine. Simplicity’s Satin 197 features a 30-character memory function, an LCD screen and impressive 197 stitch count, including 8 button holes and eyelet stitches as well as having an extension table available too.

    Sewing and embroidering with equal aplomb, the Simplicity Silk 403 is both fantastically specified but also incredibly well priced. The machine features a whole host of functions including 403 different stitches, 40 built-in embroidery designs, 97 embroidery alphabet options, as well as a large LCD screen. It has all the features of a top of the range sewing machine such as variable stitch length and width .....

      Sandy1234...Newbie . Me thinks you either on the defense for one of these Shopping Channels or The MML mine owner, who likes to block anyone trying to sell Zultanite or Csarite on Ebay , to keep the prices artificially high. Because I have in my hot little hand a letter than MML are being investigated for the cleverest marketing of all time . The Turkish Diasapore started as Ottomanite and depending on which bank funded the mining at that time it was called different name , Ottomanite , Zultanite or Csarite . Because each bank put copy rights on the name and hence the name changes . Now the miner calls it good old Turkish Diasapore because on the investigation , probably

      Wireless, the mine originally had two co-owners. One kept the name of Zultanite and the other had to re-brand to Csarite. It is the same gemstone just marketed under two different names (3, if you look for Turkish Diaspore). There's no conspiracy, just depends when it was bought, who from and by whom!

      In terms of Alexandrite, it comes from various different locations including Tanzania. What is sold as Russian Alexandrite is highly likely to be from elsewhere as production in Russia was tiny and most is in specialised collections. There's a fabulous book all about Alexandrite and it goes into production amounts which is a real eye opener!

      Hope that helps.

      Hello Meesh, nice to see you posting. I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen anything from you for ages.

      Hope you're well.

Mining is fairly limited and what is being mined is not particularly abundant with good clarity/colour change gems. Even big players in the gemstone market find it difficult to get this stone now so good ones are really "rare" and I don't use that word lightly. So if you have a good one, hang onto it. Don't be tempted to sell!!!!
      Think so far I have only drooled at your 6ct Alexandrite ring Meeshoo LOL
