    WooHoo! I have been garage saleing again but I need your help.

    I had a friend call me early this morning with what she saw and, of course, I ended up buying it.....The book is a parts book but in Spanish---which I don't speak or read but she is sooo kool and stitches so nice---I hope someone knows more about her----I haven't found much on the internet.

    I love it, and I promise your not going to find many of those floating around!!! The cabinet and machine look to be in very well kept condition which makes it that much more rare in my book. I will look around and see if I can find any information about the machine for you.

    You made a great score indeed!!!!!!

    Harrishs - I am seriously envious.

    There is precious little on the internet about these machines, but it was made in the Basque country, Elgoibar is between Bilbao and San Sebastian, a beautiful part of Spain.

    Want to send me a PM? I can do you a translation of the parts book if you send me a copy. Is it just a parts book and not a manual?

    How did it end up in the States? There has to be a story behind it. When I first visited that part of Spain, in 1968, there were quite a few US servicemen and their families there. There was a hilarious little 3 year old called Tammy who would trot around in her vest knickers and cowboy boots.
