I just received a neglected Phoenix Automatic Class 283 sewing machine. I've never seen one before let alone know anything about it. It came in a cabnet with all the accessories plus the book. This is really an unusual machine. The warrenty card says that it was manufactured in Bielelfeld, Germany. The bobbin case is another unusual item. How to remove the bobbin and replace it into place. I've never seen anything like it. What can any of you tell me about this machine? Has anyone owned one? I'm just curious! I don't know if it runs yet. There is one cord that looks like it might need some attention before plugging it in.
Thank You, Claudia
