    My Universal Machine For Free

    I just got this Universal Sewing machine. It was given to me for free. It belonged to a former boss of mine whose mother had it and passed away. I just love the color of it. I haven't had time to clean it but it looks to be pretty well taken care of and hardly used. I am sure it will sparkle when it is cleaned and polished.

    Nice gift! I love the fins!-and it's complete with a nice looking cabinet and the owner's manual. That one will clean up very nicely.

    Me too. I love her lines and what I call "the dashboard" where all of the dials, levers and twisties are..LOL Beautiful soft colors too. Can't wait to see her all cleaned up and also to see how you like her stitches. Great freebie
    Thrift Stores, YES!!!.

    Wow, that is what I'd call immaculate. What a great former boss!

    I think you will find a real nice machine when you get it all cleaned up. I was thinking it looked familiar. Then I looked and I have a more complicated version... Mine takes disks but they are AWOL - anyway with out disks it makes it virtually the same machine. The needle sets to the left so you may want to scare up a left set straight stitch foot. Wow you have a mmmmmaaaannnnuuuaaaallll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are sew blessed!!!
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    This looks like my old one that I gave to my SIL. I sewed a lot of fabric on that machine.
