    Does anyone know who makes the Atlas? I can't find out anything about it. There was one post that said they thought Brother made them. Any help will be appreciated.Bobbie

    Thanks, Lesley, that looks like one cool machine. I didn't see a case with it.
    Just got mine back from servicing, so I am good to go.

    You could always ask the seller how he knows about this history! BTW - are they the kind of pic we could see here?

    Well I would want documentation so it will show proof of ownership like original sales slips or warranty papers with her name on it. Or a COA one. I will have to get the camera up in the attic to take the photos but yeah they are tastefully done by todays standards.

    Well, she certainly had curves in all the right places. It would be interesting to think that this machine might have made some of those costumes.

    You should be careful about this comment Billy. Now they are going to be coming out of the woodwork for you. Keep in mind I still have mine, lol.

    Did you ever get together with Judy and get the machines she wanted to rehome?

    I had to go on eBay to check out those machines, Lesley. Now my girlfriend is bidding on them I have mine, thank you very much. But it can be fun!
