    So there she sat all by herself yesterday at the Salvation Army. I started to not even look...the cover was nasty and not too appealing, but I decided to take a peek anyway. Took the cover off and there sat the prettiest, shiniest little Kenmore 1912 model ever. Born in 1975, she is all metal, a bit heavy...but gorgeous!
    I was determined to be strong....I didn't need her, but when hubby offered 10 bucks and they accepted....I couldn't contain my excitement!
    Took her home for a test drive and she is smooth as silk. This girl obviously hasn't been out of the box long. I am thinking she is my new favorite, but don't tell the other 4-5 machines that.

    It's okay. You're amoung friends. My addiction had lead me to "adopt" 13 sewing machines. :-) Love your new toy.

    She is cute and may you enjoy her a very long time.
    I won't tell your other ladies either.

    Blessings,

    Hi Alderdweller! A great find. My Kenmore, bought in 1976 is still going strong and she gets along fine with my 2 Janomes :)

    Great deal, enjoy her. Unfortunately there does not to seem to be a cure but lots of support around here for all us addicts.
