    Well I don't like the FW such a wimpy little machine for me. The FW sews well enough but.. Maybe I really don't want a 301 and I will stick to the older ones in the treadles and HC. I never did like the obnoxious bobbin case.

    I catch 'em, clean 'em, etc and release 'em.

    Beautiful HC found today

    I found this in my local antique shop. It is from England. Cute and decals are wonderful and it is a HC with all the attchments. I could not pass it up. Does any one know anything about this machine?

    Glenn,

    Looks a lot like a British Jones. Cool machines.

    Glenn,

    I don't care for FWs either. My wife wanted one so I got her one, but she hasn't used it much. I spend more time taking it off the shelf looking at it and taking pics of it to help others.

    I really like Gloria. She's sweet. Love that receipt too. That I would carefully put in a arcival quality storage envelope for posterity.
