    I found this sewing machine at a local thrift store and am wondering if anyone knows anything about it. It has attachments with it and the price is $20.00.

    I didn't try it. The piece of paper I folded back for the picture was a note that said the machine needed a needle.
    I was just wondering if anyone on the board had one and what they thought of it.

    Try going to the Vintage Sewing Topic/Forum area and I'm sure there are many members there to help you. Billy our resident expert and others know all these older machines backwards and forwards.

    I will bet that when it is cleaned up and oiled, it will run like a dream. I haven't seen to many vintage machines that didn't work good. They sure don't build them like that anymore.

    When I was first married my aunt gave me her Graybar sewing machine. I used it for several years and it was a great machine. I had forgotten all about it until I saw your post. (That was 60 years ago) I don't have the machine any longer BUT I do have the same sweet husband!!! Our anniversary was last week.
