She came into my life on December 3 (won on a Goodwill auction). On December 4, we went to the local sewing store and got her a power cord / foot pedal. I did the happy dance so much when we plugged her in, her light came on, and she hums happily when her foot pedal is pushed.
I know people name their featherweights, and it only took a moment to know this pretty lady's name is Della - after my Great-Grandmother. I do believe she is the one I inherited my craftiness from. :-D Thanks for looking.
