    I'm pretty sure the Betsy Ross is fairly valuable, especially if the entire case comes with it. Condition means a lot, and it looks as if yours is in great condition.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Edit: Okay, looked up the Betsy Ross on eBay in "completed sales" and they have sold for $15 to $60 -- not as pricey as I thought, but darned cute!

    A similar Casige sold for $55 on eBay.

    Yes, the name is Betsy Ross. It has the case also, but isn't in the picture. It is electric and it does work!! I had a similar one a number of years ago and sold it for $250 on ebay.

    I guess you are going to have to put up a new shelf in your new sewing room to display your new toys. Or better yet, get that pie safe painted. I great place to display them.
    Your sis....
    Oh forgot to say that they are cute.
