Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Funny your Modern Home has "Brother" cast into the underside of the bed.
actually, at the yahoo 'vintage japanese sewing machine' group we make an effort to do this- it often is the only way to get an idea about factories et cetera. That is how I know that my 'Capri' was made by Mr. Toyoda. Maybe not he himself, but you get the idea.
I'm a Queen.... at least my pantyhose say I am!

Gosh, I would love to have a blue Wizard like that one! Hubs' nickname in the Navy was "Mr. Wizard" and c/s was "Wizard"
I collected little wizard statues for him and made him a wizard costume for Halloween, too. That is one BEEYOOTEEFUL machine!
I'm curious as to the "wonderful for Free motion quilting". I've had two 15 Japanese type clones and have sold them because they didn't FMQ well at all:<
I don't know why but when I post too many pictures they start to not open for some reason.
I'll try again on a different page.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
