    Default My Sister Has Been Holding Out on ME

    My sister came for a visit today. I was showing her my small but growing collection of vintage sewing machines. I mentioned to her that my goal was to add a Redeye and a Feather Weight to the collection. She says, "Oh I have two Redeyes and a Sphinx. My daughter is not interested in either, would you like one"? Oh goodness, I had no idea she had those machines or that she even sewed anymore. I am hoping that she will be bringing me one on her next visit. She said that she has not looked at any of them in a long time. Whoo Hooo for me I hope.

    Do you get to pick which one? If so, will it be the Redeye or the Sphinx?

    I would really prefer the Sphinx, but I will not be choosy. When she gets back to California I will ask her to Email me some photos and serial numbers.

    Awesome!! It really pays to mention to anyone and everyone that you love and collect the vintage machines. I got to talking with the hygienist, while waiting for the dentist to come in the room, about quilting and old sewing machines....she had her grandmother's old Singer 99 in a Bentwood case and she was looking for a new home for it. The next time I had an appointment she gave it to me!!!!!!
