My older DD and DGD found me a very special Christmas gift this  
year:

A Singer class 128 from 1923.  Like this, but in better shape:

Gorgeous decals, almost perfect condition, I am just astonished!  I  
learned to sew on a black-with-decals Singer, not as old as this  
one, but old.  Mom's machine was probably new in 1933 or  
thereabouts.  I have wanted to have one for years, just never got a  
roundtoit.  Lots of accessories and feet, and even an extra bobbin!  
I can hardly wait to clean and lube it, and see if it still works.  
Not a hand crank or treadle, pretty sure it was converted to  
electric.  It includes the beautiful bentwood case.

I will put pictures of this beauty on my site later.

Happy dance!

It's in wonderful shape, too!  It has been fun researching it  
online.

It really is!  I am now considering whether to leave it as is, or do  
some gentle restoration.  Some of the metal parts could use some  
TLC.  Decisions, decisions...
