Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I had been working on the things for our Christmas bazaar booth, but things can change so fast. My mom went to the doctor on Tues. to have her under active thyroid checked, and try to find out what was causing weakness in her left hand. A ct scan to check for a small stroke revealed a brain tumor, that had potentially spread from lung cancer. Also in most major organs. Starting radiation today, to hopefully control the growth and pressure on her brain. If that is successful, then possibly chemo for the rest. Too widespread for surgery. We are somewhat overwhelmed but our new family motto is "make every day count" so yall keep us in your thoughts please.
To me, it would not be out of respect for the Nazis that I'd want to own the machine, but for the historical value of it.
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
It does appear to be a Class 15 machine, but without examining it, it would be hard to know where it was made. Class 15's were made in countries other than Japan, so it could be German, or the swastika--which has been popular in many different cultures, including India--could just be incidental. The decals are unusual, but I think the seller is putting more emphasis on them than is warranted.
