    Those old Riccar machines can be a very nice well built machine. Clean it up and enjoy it.
    Play with it a bit and see what all it does. Does yours take disks? Some of them do the decorative stitches.
    My sister has two for sale in Mesa.

    I have a Riccar 777 for a parts machine.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
