    Look What I Got

    A beautiful Viking Sewing Machine 6430 in a lovely oak cabinet. It was given to me by an elderly man who brought it for his wife in May of 1975 for her birthday. It has all the cams and attachments. The sad thing is his wife passed away in June of 75 and only used the machine a few times. He never parted with it until now.

    That is a wonderful machine! Are all of the buttons and knobs free turning?

    What a nice guy. I think he needs a quilt as a "Thank You".
