    Morse Fotomatic ZigZag, Model 4100

    Ain't she pretty? Very clean, nice cabinet runs and sews like a dream. Made in Japan, Serial number 32468 but that does not mean much in the world of clones. Now, off to find a manual on the Internet.

    She sure is a pretty color.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I need an intervention perhaps. Can't help myself. I am now eyeing the horse barn lovingly. Don't have horses anymore but the side where the grain was stored might hold quite a few sewing machines. OK, Must, resist, no more machines.

    I bought it to give to my granddaughter. That is going to be very hard to do. Hmmm, perhaps I will retain ownership and just loan it to her to use. That way if she decides she no longer wants to sew the Morse can come back to me. Or, I could clean up the Universal that belonged to my mother and give that one to my granddaughter. Going to be hard to turn loose of the Morse.

    If I lived where you do and had a horse barn that wasn't being used anymore, I'd clean it up, insulate it, sheet rock it, install some flooring and bathrooms, and set it up as a Retreat area.

    Don't think that I had not thought about it before. However, I decided that it is too far away from the house to run the electrical, water and install a septic tank. When I was considering having a small outbuilding/shed built behind the garage for my quilting space I discovered I had to have building permit. The cost alone for the permit would have been over two thousand dollars. That is two thirds of what the building would have cost. I also learned that the tool shed, chicken house and the horse shed and barn are all illegal. Those structures were built over 16 years ago but so far the county has not come after us to for the permit fees, fines and whatever they would want. Is it not amazing that our ancestors were able to build and construct what they did without beaurocrats?

    Ironically, I live in the Spanaway area also - instead of giving her this one, I have a Morse Fotomatic 4400 which judging from your picture attached to your post, appears to be mounted in the same type of cabinet. I'm actually selling mine and it is in perfect condition!
