    Went to some local thrift stores in my area yesterday and look what I found for 47.95 and in the cabinet too. Don't have to tell you this baby came home with me and is going to get a good cleaning and oiling today. She is set up next to my 201 and they are getting along great. I tried her at the store and she just purred along so beautifully. Cant wait to try the fancy stitches. Want them for applique as it seems no matter what new machine I use for them, I don't like the look of them or the sound the machine.

    Looks just like the machine my mother had years ago back in the late 1950's. Now my youngest sister has it and it still works and has all the cams to do them fancy decorative stitches. HAve a great day and enjoy. Huggies, Fay
