My New Baby!
Here she is, born December 9, 1948. I'm not sure what time of the day, but she is simply a beauty. I have dreamed of owning one of these little ladies and now that has come true. Tomorrow I take her to be serviced and when she gets back home I plan on making my Dear Jane blocks with her, and maybe I will do some paper piecing. The stitch on this one is great and I can't wait to get started.
As you can see I have several bobbins and attachments that came along with her. I only wish I had the manual, but I know I can find one online so I'm not dissappointed.
The case is a little worn but that is okay too! I was told that it used to belong to an older gentleman that sewed and when he passed his daughter gave it to her friend. That lady did not sew at all and when she moved here to Tennessee she put it up for sale. I very seldom look on the internet for anything but I just happened to be browsing the other day. I found this and only had to travel about 15 miles to look at it and buy it. I still can't believe it! She is actually mine!!
