    Oh, not too big...9x9 maybe? 9x8? Just big enough for him and his gear. 6x8? maybe that would be about right to be period correct?

    Sewwishful, you have just posted what I have been thinking. They say some things happen for the best. I'm sorry that Billy had that occurence with that Copperhead, but maybe it was meant to be. Now he is getting the treatment he needs.

    Billy, I am glad that you are back in the shop and am praying for you.

    So while the bite was unexpected, not wanted/needed, painful, etc, etc, it was a Godsend to Billy. PRaying for a complete recovery.

    :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: My thoughts exactly!! You are loved and watched over, Billy!! Our prayers are covering you for quick recovery!! :-)

    My DH and DS lucked out last year and bought a FW off e-bay just because it was a 1946 which is my birth year. When we received the machine and looked up the serial number it was dated Sept. 16th 1946 my birthday. :mrgreen: Now you know how old I am. :roll:
    LOL, it was a very good year, Trish, I am three months older than you!

    I found this listing on CL http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/atq/2538520993.html
    I like the little Singer 20, so cute.

    Uploaded the Singer 15-75 and what came with it to the photos section. I wish I knew how to separate the pages that are stuck together in the manuals.
