I found her at the antique festival here in Midland today. The cord is frayed, so I took her over to see if Dad could fix her. Born March 19th, 1913 in Elizabethport, New Jersey...I got her for 25 dollars...

Meet Edith...

GOODNESS...WHAT A WONDERFUL FIND!!! Even if it doesn't work, it is such a great conversation fixture!!! A bonus would be that it really does sew! Is the foot glass or metal?
