    New old machine!

    Somewhere on the board I posted yesterday that I got a Neccar machine. I don't know where I got that name but it is a Riccar. I got it for $5. at a junk/antique shop. I haven't done much with it yet but it does run. It needs a good cleaning.

    That Riccar will last you forever and ever. You are lucky to have found her. If I see a Riccar, I would snap it up ASAP. They are wonderful machines! Mine finally died, and I replaced it with an older Singer TechTronic recently. Lucky you! She looks to be in wonderful condition also.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
