    Found this morning at a local yard sale, this sweet little Betsy Ross sewing machine. Works great! Chain stitch will be great for attaching quilts to the leaders on my longarm.
    Its in excellent condition and is a great addition to my collection of antique machines as well.

    I think it came out in the early 1950's. Looks brand new, just a few scuffs on the case.

    Love it! You are one lucky gal! Wish I could get around to tag sales as they'll be popping up all over beginning soon.
