    Wow, what did I miss here? Weedwoman has a Model 27 allotted on January 16, 1902. Did I miss where she posted something about a Model 63? I'm confused?

    I paid $65 for the whole thing - it is missing the coffin top.

    Nancy, I would say remember me in your will, but I am older than you so that will not work. So I will just say if you find another one like that you know where I live. Kathie

    Wow, I take a day to put together a quilt top and the machines come out of the woodworks. Nice finds everyone. I stay on the lookout, and mention my addiction, I mean hobby, and have gotten a couple of machines that way. I still cannot imagine, in my wildest dreams, thinking I would rather have a little money that would be gone in a flash, than my grandmother's sewing machine. It is, in a way, a sad hobby, because you know all these machines were somebody's pride and joy when they got them. I always make sure to get the story if at all possible, and make sure that there isn't someone in the family that would want it.

    My paternal Grandmother was Bessie. Widowed in her 40's, she worked in the shipyards during the war to support my Dad & his 3 siblings. And then in a coat factory as a seamstress until retirement. I still remember the cute little royal blue coat she made me when I was about 5 or 6. Remember getting in trouble for getting chocolate candy on it after Sunday School one day. Hmmm...maybe I need a VSM to name after her?? :mrgreen:
