Size:  36.2 KBFirst pic is "before" scrubbing, last two pic's are after a couple of hours of scrubbing and tweaking. Works great...think her name will be "Lilly" as in lillie white, and after my husbands grandma. This just about completes my "wish" list, but who know???? Thanks to the info on here, I was able to even get her a proper badge. The serial number doesn't quite jive with the internet info, but she must be a 1964 with EV as her first two letters.

    Oh, Lilly is a pretty girl! Lucky you to find her. I'm on the hunt for a bargain of a FW myself. Happy Sewing!

    I just saw one of those in Dothan, Al. My Honey was with me, hinted for my birthday in March. Waiting to see if he picked up on the hint.

    Lilly, is pretty and looks in great shape...Funny how we like our Girls...never seen a machine named after a guy. LOL
