A White sewing machine!!! It was a little dirty but not too bad. I didn't know if it would sew or not but everything seemed to move freely and the only thing missing was the bobbin case. So I asked how much and she said $5 I loaded it in the buggy and told Richard that if we couldn't get it to work, it was only a $5 loss.
The first thing I did when I got home was email Michelle. She knows about everything there is to know about old machines. I didn't even have a clue on how to thread this baby up! She quickly sent me an email back saying that after work she would see what she could do for me. Meanwhile, I cleaned and oiled her up! Yep! She is a "her" and I've named her "Beatrice" :)
Here she is all clean, shiny, and oiled!
I got an email from Michelle telling me what I needed to know and even sent me a link to a printable manual for her!! Thank goodness, because I would have never have figured out how to thread her. So once I wound a bobbin, threaded her up and hit the pedal......this is what she did!!! She sewed perfectly!!! I didn't even have to adjust the tension at all!!!
I was so excited that I had to run outside and show Richard what she did!! Such a good feeling to see her sew!
If you remember last month I bought my Kenmore for $4 and it sews like a dream! I love that machine and this one sews the same way. I have an old cabinet in Andrew's room that he is using to set his tv on, not sure if I will put this machine in that cabinet or have Richard to build me a box thing to set it in. Of course, I could just leave it the way it is, I suppose...
Have a wonderful and Blessed day!
