I'm so excited! On Saturday there was a yardsale directly across the street from us. DH had gone across earlier in the morning and kept telling me I should go over because there were 2 sewing machines there. I kept saying, "Do you really think I need another one?" Well, later in the morning, I went over and lo and behold there was a Kenmore very similar to my very first new sewing machine that I got in 1972. So, for $5, I bought it and looked it up. It's Kenmore Model 448 and it was made in 1973. I downloaded the manual last night. It can use a twin needle (which my first one could not) and since my Brother broke, I haven't had a machine that can zigzag so I'm excited. I'll get a picture of her soon and now I have to think up a name. So, now I have 6 sewing machines and 1 serger and, I actually have a sewing machine at my sister's house (it was my paternal grandmothers). Used it many many years ago but it hasn't been up out of it's cabinet in decades. Someday I'll have to go and open her up.
I need a bigger sewing room! :)
