    I love getting a machine with documented "history" so I know where it started and how it was used. I got both my 201s from families whose relative bought it originally.

    My hand crank 99 went to Canada with its original owner (a missionary) and sewed for kids.

    My 401A came from a friend. Her x-boyfriend's mother gave it to her.

    I don't know where my White treadle came from but I brought the original owner with it. I can't leave it open at night. It sews by itself. :-)

    After all that is said and done my next thought as I'm cleaning it up is which of my children are going to try and take this from me? I've lost a 401, 201 and two Featherweights that way.

SO for me I think about keeping focused and counting parts and putting them in groups in little plastic lids etc.
    Just thought I say that those two little screws held the feed dog in place and took me quite a while to find out where they belonged because I had put the cover back on!! It's all good, right?
    Creativity needs focus and application...
