    Isn't she pretty!

    My husband found another one in his favorite color- $15.

    I have to admit, when he pulled off the cover, I was rather smitten myself.

    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I can hear the rock-n-roll music in the background!

    I love the looks of that machine!

    Very nice! The spool pin in the alcove is a unique feature.

    This one had a note on it " motor smokes" My husband looked at it - the insulation on the wires is gone, so he'll be doing some work before seeing if the motor has issues - or if it was just the wires burning. The machine itself turns over very, very smooth.

    I've got two left homing zigzag machines we'll be donating, and I think this one will be kept.

    Oh, Cathy. I love that machine and the color combination. I have two sew mor machines and one of them has the spool pin in the same position as yours. Mine are both a very pleasing blue color. I will have to check and see if they are left homing but I don't believe they are.

    Nice!!! I saw one of these in person recently (if not identical, very close) and I wanted it but it was in pretty bad shape and really overpriced and yet somehow I was really tempted anyway. $15 is a steal - I'd have snatched this one up too!

    I really like the colors, and I also think that curved cut-out space for the spool is really cool for some reason. Seems somewhat unique.

    I love how the lower color tone gets carried up and into the upper field by the stitch length indicator. Breaking up the two tone line makes the colors pop or something.
