    Picked up this lovely yesterday!

    I'm so excited. I found her at a yard sale for $15. The power cord is in pretty bad shape so I need to get a new one before I know if she runs. I can't wait to get her all cleaned up.

    What a fun find! If you have any other Singer "girls", you might try their power cords. I have a 66-16 that had a cord that had been chewed up by critters. I couldn't wait for hubby to fix the cord, so I tried the cord from my 401A and it worked!
    I know you are having fun. Keep us posted on her rehab,

    So glad you could "rescue" her.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
