    I love your gift. I had a Domestic, put out by Eatons in 1959. Your cabinet reminds me of the machine I had. I have always regreted getting rid of my Domestic. I have never seen one like it since, but I'm always looking for one.

    How wonderful! I sewed on a machine just like that for 30 years! It's a wonderful machine. Hope you will get it serviced for oil and grease after sitting unused for so long. It's a fantastic machine. My daughter still uses mine.

    I had one very similar and now my daughter is using it. I still have my mother's older model but something is broken and the dealer said they could no longer get the part. He offered to take it off my hands for free and then he would use it for parts. NOT....

    He goes to my church. I have known him for 6 years now. Last November I was talking to him about how I liked older sewing machines and would like to have one some day. Well he went back to Florida for the winter. I had forgotten about our talk but I guess he had not because last Thursday I came home from work and there it was sitting by my door with a note on it saying, "Enjoy and take good care of her," Rod.

    Beautiful, it is brand new as she didn't use it that much. I would oil it up before trying to use it. I'm sure all the oil and grease it had is gone now. Lucky you.
