    As i was looking on Craigslist at job listings, i just thought I'd type in sewing machines. Well i clicked on an ad that just said Estate sale April, 30. Well here is what i found. I have a baby finally.....I'm naming her Maria after my grandmother how taught me how to sew on her Singer trundle Machine. These pictures were taken as soon as I got her home, she is beautiful even dirty. I need to get the cord replaced it seems a little old and I don't want anything to happen to her. It came with so many different feet and I don't even know how to use them yet. The original manual was in the case too.

    Here's the site to check your SN to see when "Maria" was born.
    I looked it up but thought you might want the pleasure of doing it yourself. You did GOOD!!!!

    How fortunate you are. She was born on or slightly after March 18th, 1935.

    The more I read about the featherweights, I am beginning to think I need one. I went to a hospital to show their volunteers how to make weighted blankets. I pulled out my Janome 2007DCLE, and they all pulled out their featherweights. Needless to say, they were so impressed with my machine and table that I use with it, and I was impressed with theirs.

    Wow, this is a great find. I would think living in MS, I would find some great buys. Even no one here sews much or they are not getting rid of anything. Enjoy Maria!
