    Thanks for all the Happy Birthdays and nice comments. Yep, hubby and the machine are both keepers. I will have to say it is probably one of the nicest things I ever found at the thrift store. If I had been a few minutes later, it would probably have been gone. A man came in about the same time I did and he was looking over my shoulder. "Are you gonna buy it?" Yep, I think I will. You just never know what you are gonna find. :lol:

    Don't know what you paid and it is none of my business, but I think you have a beauty there! Wish to goodness I could find anything pertaining to sewing at a Thrift Shop here. Love her & I wish you & her many many gorgeous quilts together. Congratulations & Welcome to the FW Club.

    I have been wanting one of these for many years. Never run across one in all my plundering tho.
    I've seen some at a quilt store for appr. $400.00 but can't bring myself to spend that much. You hit the jack pot with this one.

    Happy Birthday. Congratulations on your find. I also found my FW at a thrift store, not even looking for one that day.
    I got another one yesterday I bought from a friend, I have not opened the package yet.
    the first one has been serviced and the plug replaced, as it was missing when I bought it.
    I will probably sell the first one and keep this one.

    Congratulations and Happy Birthday! You are one lucky lady. I never find anything exciting in a thrift store or yard sale. Enjoy!!

I cleaned it; oiled it; and it runs like a champ. Case is in need of some repair, but there are lots of attachments with it and the original manual. Monday was my birthday so this is my present to myself. :lol: :lol:
    What a beautiful birthday present. May I ask the price of this beauty?

    DH is a good shopper. Looks like a centennial. There is a blue ring on the Singer medallion?
