My MIL gave this to me about 6 or 7 years ago, when they moved out of their big house and had to downsize. It's a Western Electric, and the motor says May 1917 on it. It certainly needs some work to be functional, but I don't know whether to sell it or not.

I don't have room in my sewing room to keep it set up and it's much to heavy to be a "pretend featherweight"

If I decide to sell it, does anyone have an idea of what it might be worth?

Send a message to Lostin51. He works with vintage machines and would be able to fill you in on value, etc. What a lovely machine.

Wow...she sure is pretty :) (Green with envy here) I'd love to have her but no funds right now. Lostn51 could give you an estimate maybe? His name is Billy and he works with old machines. Hope you get a good price out of her. :D

I'd try to keep it. It's a beauty and I don't remember seeing one like that before.
