    Wow! What a sweet neighbor, and beautiful machines! I do hope you take a few moments to sew a bit on each of them!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Hi again....I got out my two new FWs and serviced them. Didn't need to clean them because there already pristine. Even the wiring underneath on both machines is like new! I replaced the needles, oiled and lubed them. Both machines have the MOST beautiful and even stitches....no tension problems....I still can't believe it! I'm going to be setting up my new sewing room this coming week and can't wait to set them out on display. When my grandchildren are old enough to take on the skill to sew these machines will become theirs, but until then...I am keeping them safe and warm in my sewing room...LOL.

    Wow! How blessed you are! And such a neighbor!!! I was just thinking of my grandgirls --how I would love to give them such a gift!!
    I just last week received a Singer 401a I bid on Ebay (kind of scary for a new adventure for me) looked pretty good in pictures..opened her top and thought I might have made a big Booboo...spent about 15 hours cleaning her so she stitches now (she would not Zig Zag). .still may need more cleaning. She needs a ZZ cover plate before I can really see if she will work..I think when I get her all cleaned up she will be a great machine!
    So happy for you!

    My 401a was a Craigslist find. It was really rough when I got it and wouldn't so faster than a snail's pace, but oiled her up and she purrs like a kitten. So that's what I call her ' Kitten'. May keep her, not sure yet.
