    At last.....Suzie has arrived. I was a nervous wreck waiting. The man I bought her from didn't sew. He said the motor worked and the needle went up and down but didn't know if it sewed. I decided to take a chance and buy her. Cords looked great so I plugged her in and sat for 10 minutes afraid to sew. Finally jumped in and she purrs like a kitten and sews a perfect seam.
    She needs some cosmetic work and a really good cleaning and oiling. But she is older than me and I could use that too. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I love her. I'm glad I took a chance and can give her a good home. Yipeee.......

    The case is missing a latch

    You are so lucky. I sit here wishing that I could find one. I do have my Mom's old Kenmore in a cabinet but the cord has fallen apart. I plan to take it in but haven't done it. I have lots of fond memories since I learned to sew on that machine and made all my buttonholes on it for years.

    If you make a custom bag to fit your Suzie, the missing latch will not matter. I have mine in a tote bag to take to group sewing. I also have the booklet in the bag, in case I need to adjust anything. My Elizabeth stays in the tote all the time, just open the top and take her out to sew.
    Enjoy your new treasure.

    Where did you find Suzie? It's like a baby being born! I waited overnight for my first one to arrive and was so excited. The man that helped me probably thought I was crazy! Since then I got the bug and have added 4 more! I just love using them they are all great machines. Have fun with Suzie!
