I've waited a long time, four years to be exact, finally won one on ebay, I had all of my friends and relatives actively looking and searching for me, to no avail. Bid on several unsucessfully on ebay before. Last week was my lucky week. I have looked her up & over,she was made in 1941, oiled her and other than a few pins scratches, she's great cosmeticly(sp?) & she purrs like a kitten. Still working on thread tension,but all in all great experience.The seller on ebay made it a whole lot easier. YEAH ME!I am so excited.Can't wait to piece a quilt on her. I posted over on the vintage thread also, can you tell I'm a proud momma.lol.
