    Cathy, good to "hear" your cheery voice again. Thought that since it is summer you were on vacation. Surgery is not a vacation but costs about the same as a really great one. Glad you are back with us; you were missed.

    Donna,

    I see you are near my old stomping grounds. I grew up in Orlando (way back when dirt was new).

    I have a 227m that has the 15 mechanism and the hinged bobbin holder. It was rusted up when i got it but i convinced it to sew. I have to borrow a slide plate from a 237 but it works.

    I have lived here 44 years so who knows, we may have run into each other. If you ever get back this way give me a shout ahead of time and perhaps we can meet (or you stay here if you are so inclined and the guest room isn't already spoken for).

    It is SO nice to have this thread back! My computer would not load it for over six months. No amount of tech support or restarting, reloading, or dumping would allow me to view the page. Reading these posts is like seeing an old friend again. Huge happy sigh and tons to share soon!

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Donna,

    What a sweet offer. I don't have any plans on being there in the near future, but plans change.
    I do have relatives in the Orlando/ Winter Park/ Lake Butler area. I really want to get back there.
    My last visit was in 1992. Hard to believe that so much time has passed. LOL

    This is interesting. Glad you got it sewing again.

This model was not sold in the USA.

    Great information Cathy, thank you! I knew we could count on you for the correct model!

    Also, Kathy S. has kept some of us up-to-date on your recovery! I am so glad you are feeling better and on the mend. My Dad had the same problem, but when he was diagnosed some 40 years ago they didn't know what to do about it so he lived with it and ended up with cancer.
