    What a fine piece - made when products lasted forever - no plastic! Many fun hours with Dorothy.

    She is either 1949 or 1955. I looked up her serial number, and the web site said 1949. Then one of our sewing machine experts says she is a 1955 model. I don't know for sure, but I can't wait to run her!
