    Question Plaza Sewing Machine

    Has anyone ever heard of this machine? I think electric was put into to at a later time.
    Thank you!

    Wow Beautiful Machine!!

    It is possible the original brand name was painted over on my machine.

    looks like my Vindex Special - mine has a very messed up table. I put a steering wheel spinner on it and let kids play with it.

    That machine is named Donna Donor. She has a few parts missing but I love her anyway. She has kept lots of Slant-O-Matic machines alive. She still has some good parts left. She cost me $25 but she has saved me way over that much.

    HI I have recently come across this machine in it's original case and I was wondering if you found out any information on it? A search of the web doesn't seem to leac me anywhere but here. It's a beautiful machine.
