My son and daughter-in-law came down today and brought my sewing machine. It was supposed to be a Singer. I had a little party for my husband as his birthday is Wednesday and the kids work and go to school, etc. on Wednesday. My daughter did not even come because her town 30 minutes up the road had a dusting of snow (that was her excuse). My son watched the Cowboy/Colts game and the kids went into the other bedroom to watch a movie. After they left I looked at the machine. It IS NOT a singer, it is a Kenmore. It has been in storage for 17 years and the thread and belt are dry rotted. I oiled it and cleaned it up. I will have to order a book because I don't understand all the dials on it.
I then went into the other bedroom to get my pins I left in there yesterday and all the cover was torn off the bed and every movie in the cases were in the floor. I was so disappointed I cried. I am not able tonight to pick them up so I just shut the door.
