    White Mdl 793 in Indy

    http://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=9541704

    Indy members, we put a bid on this guy already. Hopefully we'll not be outbid. I liked it's color and the fact it has some built in decorative stitches, owners manual and a bag full of tools and accessories.
    It's time for another road trip.

    If we aren't outbid are there any forum members in Indy that would like to meet up with us?

    Any good places to check out there?

    Well, yeah I guess that's what I'm kinda saying. Unless someone comes in and runs it up over my max. If that happens I'll post it.

    Otherwise I'll post about my road trip to get it.

    Here's one closer to home Joe
    At least you wouldn't have to add the cost of gas to the machine.

    Ewwwww! What is ... or was it? Looks like it's been parted out all ready.

    I think I'll pass.

    My wife is interested. I told her, call him there's the number. I don't know if she will or not. I'm not sure we need a machine to sew burlap bags.

    I bet if it will sew a burlap bag it will sew other things with a chain stitch - it would be nice for decorating or for basting things together - I hope they have a reasonable price
