My happiness knows no bounds. My Daughter in Law just asked me for  
advice on buying a sewing machine.
I can pass on that lovely tough as heck, stitches beautifully 1970's New  
Home, and she wants to take it I didn't have to coerce her at all.
Just got to cart it to her by train!! That's going to be a work out

 It's great when a trusty old machine finds a caring and  
appreciative new home.
  I saw an old Elna  sell at an auction sale for  $ 7. this week -
  <  that will just buy a premium pint at the pub,  here  >
-  it seemed OK ;   had the metal case;  some accessories & cams ;  

 late 50's ?  all white in colour  like this one  :

I was very tempted to bid,  but I'm partial to the late 60's  /
 early 70's  Elna  Star series  SU  blue top model.
And sometimes it's nice to see the happy face on the other guy
when he scores a bargain  ..

John, that's a pretty machine and hard to pass up. To bad I'm downsizing  
instead of adding to my sewing machine stash.

 A  very clean  Pfaff 1209   followed me home from the Thrift Store
 yesterday  < $ 35. >  and if I can find a bobbin case today  -
  I'll soon be running it through its paces.
