    Burdick Rescue

    Here is a little Sears 1900-1910 Burdick Miriam gave me to see what I could do with. Poor thing was in sad shape.

    Franklin (White)

    Here is another one. Some of you have seen this already. I could do more on both of them and will do little on each one each time I use them to sew.

    Glenn,

    Your pics wouldn't fully open, but I saw enough to feel safe in saying; you are an artist.

    I have some skills, but not like you do. I'd love for your to work your magic on my New Home.

    Speaking of the New Home, I've got some pics I'll be emailing you soon. I need to find some latches for the case.

    Joe

    I don't remember seeing the Burdick since you did it up, Glenn - wow you really transformed that one! It is cute little machine. I have it's twin - says Minnesota - twin is in pretty good shape.

    I'll have to send more home with you Glenn... We'll have to sneak so Pat doesn't throw a fit.

    Good job on the Franklin, Glenn. What did you do to get the lettering looking so good? Did you repaint that area?
