thanks Ellen!
are you speaking of the sewing machine stamp? if so, it's available from Stampin' Up! if you have a Stampin' Up! consultant near you, you can order from them.
if that's not the stamp you speak of, let me know :-)

hugs, wendy

just adding to my previous comment - the sewing machine is from a stamp set called "Puns from the Past" by Stampin' Up!
