    Thanks littlehud! Family heirlooms can almost heal your heart when you lose the loved one! It has been 36 years since I lost my grandmother!

    You are going to love that 201-2. They are one of the quietest machines out there and they make a beautiful stitch too. Have fun sewing with her.

    Scrappycat,
    You'll just love sewing with your 201-2! I have a 201-4, the 4
    designates it as a hand crank. Its treadled now, thought my arm would fall off by the time I wound that first bobbin. Its such a quiet machine and sews beautiful stitches.

    sewing treadle group swap blocks .
