    I happened into the Humane Society's thrift shop this afternoon.

    They had a Kenmore 1781 with accessories and manual for $15.

    They said it was priced that low because the feed dogs didn't work. Well, they work fine.

    I think this will be great for use when I am teaching teenagers to sew

    Hey, I clicked in here for some eye candy. Where is it?

    Glad you are giving a home to a nice older machine.
