    What a blessing your friend is to you! Your friend knew how much a vintage sewing machine meant to you and that you'd appreciate it! So happy for you!

    Another great idea! All my machines (and I don't have THAT many) have back stories that are interesting, and I have been considering whether to document them in a blog.
    The receipt was included. She bought it in 1986 for $440. In 1986 our family of 3 was getting by on less than $8000/year and that would have seemed like a princely sum to me.

    Wow, what a lovely gift. And it looks in pristine condition. The decals aren't even worn.

    Beautiful! I have one just like it! The stitches are amazing. I would cry with happiness if that happened to me. You are a lucky person. Mine was unloved at an old antique shop. She was covered with dirt and muck. I brought her home, cleaned her up, and now she's running beautifully.
