Passing on a Sewing Machine

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 T.

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. John T.
