I'm so excited! I volunteer at a Christian Benefit Shop (thrift shop), and today bought a really neat, old Singer sewing machine. It's beautiful, and now I have to decide whether or not to have someone check it out, oil it, and do whatever is needed so that it will work (actually, the needle goes up and down now, but the plug is rather frayed, and the bobbin is a vibrating spindle bobbin, which I don't know anything about). It's a Singer 127 or 128, and the instruction book has the date Apr. 1921 on it. Would you get it working, or just enjoy the beauty of it in your home? I have two wonderful Janome quilting machines that do everything but talk, and really don't need it to work.
