    got 5 in the van

    Ok, one I'm delivering but the other 4 will be coming home with me. Plus the singer 12. And we haven't made it out of Kansas City MO yet. More when we stop for the night.

    Haven't taken pictures yet. Have to move stuff sround to make more room in case we find more today. Tomorrow we'll drop off the big machine and frame and then there will be lots more room. Don't plan on stopping onevthe way home. Need to try to beat a snowstorm heading east while we are heading west. That wasn't in the forecast when we left.

    so far there is a GE Sewhandy for parts. A newer Wilcox& Gibbs in I nice wood case. A pretty dressmaker. And a pfaff 130, also for parts. The pfaff has issues - along with the spoolholder. Ours is misding thst and they sell for more than we paid for the machine.

    im hopefull today I cab pick up the morse and white I found on craiglist and DH is after a viking 6490.

    Cathy, It sounds so fun to be out collecting with your husband also taking an interest. My hubby will go thrifting sometimes and it's a lot more fun with two!

    If you see a vintage sock knitting machine that really works, I would be interested. Of course, you know I'm looking for a bargain. I love my 15-91 so much that I haven't even started on the 301A. Thank you! Hope you have a fun trip with loads of good machines & great bargains!
