    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    They didn't have much after the quake and fire so they turned the coffin box over and packed it all in there.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    At least now days we don't mistreat sewing machines that way...we use grocery carts to push our possessions around after a disaster.

    not a bad price or anything - just a thought though - line these up in front of your hoard or treadles and you don't have to move the chair around - set it down and sew... put it back up and move to the next machine!!!

    But it looks like the one the older sister (Meg, maybe) uses in "Little Women" movie in the colorized version. That explains the price.

    Actually it was a typo. (Always pays to be polite and inquisitive...)

    They said $200 on the phone, when I got there and they could tell that I was disappointed that it was not pre-1900, they dropped the price to $100. I said SURE.

    Has manual, notes, and stuff that I will examine closer when I get home from work.

    Steve, that is interesting that they thought to save the sewing machine!! That would be my priority and the important papers file. Furbabies will need to run out the door by themselves to be saved. Great provenance on this machine.

    Remember that these units cost the equivalent of 1/2 a years salary for most folks.

    Also, just as an FYI - I sent a message to the curator of the SFmuseum just to be sure it was illegitimately acquired.

    Great job getting that machine ... and the price ... what a bonus.

    I believe you mean "legimately acquired" ?? ... or would it be more interesting otherwise??

    I send a question. "Does it sew?" LOL
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I'd rather have sour kraut and spinach pizza for dinner than that thing sitting in my living room ... or neighborhood.

    I can remember making marbles do that when I was a kid - you heat them hot then put them on ice...
