    Wish I knew how old she is? My mother had one many years ago and she try to teach me how to sew.
    But I was young and dumb :roll:

    I asked about a manual just yesterday. I was given this site. Least expensive I have found. I got the download, it was quick and easy and only $5.95. This is the page for your #.

    Many moons ago I had that machine and loved it. Unfortunately it got put in a shed during a move and was rusted beyond a clean up. You will love the cams! Let's see, I purchased that with graduation money so it was probably about 1975...
