I was talking to my daughter today over the phone and she said she was sending me this picture of a machine she found stored in her storage/craft room that they were cleaning out and looking for some stuff. She said her husband had brought it home several years ago and she just forgot about it. Can you believe it. I said well, "Hellooooooo. She's not a sewer. Looked up the serial number and it's a 1938. She said it was in good shape. Will try it out when we go see them right after Thanksgiving. Can't wait.

I noticed "sewing machine" listed in a local garage sale. The ad also had the phone number...which I immediately called. It was a Sears machine. RATS!
