Hi, I am called THE OLD SEWING MACHINE MAN. I recondition, repair, sell parts for and deal in vintage and antique sewing machines. I am in Florida between Gainesville, and Ocala. I also have a wweb site, www.theoldsewingmachineman.com. My wife is heavy into quilting and teaches at a couple of the local quilt shops. I have seen many inquires about old machines and people wanting to know about them so I guess I will join this forum so I might be abel to help wome of you, and for those of you who live in Florida, YES, I will be at the QuiltFest in Jacksonville, in September.
