I found this hidden away in my parent's basement. My mother was never a sewer and I only remember her using this once when I was in 1st grade to make mini Christmas stockings. I used it a couple of times in the 80's and then totally forgot about it. Between them moving and then my mother passing away in 2004, I never thought about it again. I started seeing these beautiful old machines showing up on the board, and it sparked a thought. I happened to mention it to my daddy, and he said he thought it was in the basement. AND IT WAS!! The black case is musty spelling and is airing out in the garage. This is exactly how I found the machine with all the parts. I have yet to even dust it off! Off to the machine shop this weekend!
