    This was abused and a smelly gooey mess, but no more. The man said "It don't work, but you can have it if ya want it". I casually said, "Well, i'll take it then and tinker with it." He carried it to my car for me. I was casual and calm. In the privacy of my car, I squealed like a little girl! I had it sewing within 4 minutes out of the case.

    Gives new meaning to "one man's trash is another's treasure". She is certainly a treasure. So happy she has found a new home where she can be loved and cared for once again.

    You are so kind to rescue the poor little thing. If you ever need someone to babysit for her, just send me a pm.
