    I saw this advertised on Craigslist today for $50. I went to look at it and met the nicest old couple. The machine had been her mother's. She said she wanted it to go to someone who loved to sew, and she could tell I would appreciate the machine. I got it for $40.

    If "she" only could talk ! Wonder how many hours and how many sewers "she" has seen over the years.

    Sweet! Happy for you. I found a Singer 66 last weekend at a garage sale. These old machines are fun to use and collect.
