My newest machine is a 401A, given to me a couple of years ago from a friend when my 500 model went kaput. It's been the only machine I sew with until I got the White treadle.
I started a sampler quilt with the White and I must say, she sews so smooth I couldn't believe it. I should have wonderful leg muscles by the time I''m done.
I just won a 99K crank machine yesterday. Can't wait till it comes in. I can start working on the arm muscles. Too bad they don't come left handed.
And last but not least I bought a Featherweight last week but still waiting for it to come in.
So am I actually starting vintage and moving backwards?
