I teach Family and Consumer Science to middle schoolers. I know, I have the BEST job ever! In January, my students prepared projects for our County Youth Show. I brought my FW, 99K, and 99 Centennial handcrank to school to help with sewing projects. The handcrank was loved by all! Yesterday I picked up a 99 Centennial with a knee control. Horrible shape and filthy! Took it immediately to school. Today several kids got involved in the cleaning and motor-ectomy. Two boys especially LOVED every greasy, filthy minute and they were so excited about restoring her beauty! We went through loads of cotton balls, Q-tips, and sewing machine oil. I will order a spoked handwheel and handcrank from Jenny and they cannot wait to help put her back together! This is my first conversion so I hope it goes well!
Can't get my photo to load, so just the story today.
