    Well, not exactly me. I went to visit a friend and she sews. Not too much, but keeps trying to get better. She uses a Viking. She told me they had to move her MIL to a nursing home and clear her house to sell. She took this beauty because she felt bad. She tried to sell it on e-bay but it didn't sell (lucky me). So, guess where she lives now. I learned to sew many years ago in one of this babies. when I turned it on and started sewing it was great, until I got to the full speed, when the machine started making that beautiful humming sound typical of the featherweight. I lost it. It made me cry thinking of my Grandmother teaching me to sew.

    You will absolutely love it!! Give her a name, my black machine is named Babs and my white one is named Zelda, after my grandma! Love them both and they both sew like a charm. They will last forever.
