    my heart is pounding!

    THIS <http://charlotte.craigslist.org/atq/3766350114.html> is on my local c/l. Of course, I replied that I'd love to come see it first thing in the morning. Can you believe it? I check this compulsively, and today -- i didn't. four hours late, and probably too late. but, can you imagine?!!

    arrrghhh!!!
    <anxiously waiting on an email back>!

    I got it! When I told her that my husband was angry with me, she let me have it for 100!!! Wow! The handle of the case is taped up but other than that the machine looks nice! A f25 O 363 is the only number I see on it. One of its little rubber feet is missing But the decal on the bed looks great.

    Congrats!! I notice too that the case lining is different than most of the ones we usually see.
    I'm thinking that has to do with the older series of machines. Yours is one of 20,000 with serial numbers allocated July 11, 1939, and I'm guessing that it has a leather handle, yes?

    yes, Tammi -- most of the handle is taped with black electrician's tape, but where it joins the case, I think it is leather. I am *finally* sitting down, and I refuse to get up to go look!! =))

    I will get some pictures on tomorrow. I still haven't had time to plug it in. I can tell you my family was like . . "" ohhkay "" even after I explained that it was like a holy grail for a nickel. thanks guys =((


    I really appreciate the congratulations!! I know you all 'get it'!! =)))

    Congratulations, Lara! I'm equally trilled for you! I've gotten 2 for tremendously low prices ($30 & $60), and my heart is STILL racing. I love these little ladies. I take mine to workshops and to mini-group sew-ins all the time. Such a great stitch and delightful to sew with.

    You can get replacement "feet" called bed cushions from April 1930's for $5.95 with not postage. They arrive in a couple of days. If one is missing, probably the rest are bad. She also has replacement screws if you need them. I just replaced a couple of sets for two elderly ladies in my quilt guild.

    Have fun with her!
