    Talking Ahhhh! I have to tell SOMEONE who might understand!

    I just found this one my door step and my heart almost stopped!

    my friends are all joking behind my back about my vintage sewing machine enthusiasm, so I can't explain how exciting this is to me. I am limited by funds to a max of $25 or less for sewing machine purchases. I found a Singer 301a for that price that I was able to revive, and my Morse Fotomatic IV is a work in progress. But I have only dreamed about the cuteness of a featherweight.
    I had been warned that if I revealed my interest people might start dropping off their unwanted puppies. So when a friend said she would someday bring me her mother's old black singer, I had visions of a 15-91 or maybe a 66. I told her I would be glad to clean and revive it formher, but can't take a family heirloom. And this is what she left me! Now she won't take it back!
    Just had to tell someone who might understand😊

    I don't collect the old machines since I have no interest in restoring them. This one, however, looks fantastic.

    What a wonderful friend you have, and since she won't take the machine back, I would make her something really special.
