> They are HEAVY machines. Mine will do some embroidery. It was the top of the line model. An aunt, who could sew absolutely anything, recommended it when my mother went to purchase one. Mine is in pristine condition. Other than me in 8th grade home ec, and later some quilt piecing, it was never used. As I now have the time, I'm rediscovering quilting and sewing. I have the manual, etc. My mother had it serviced by someone near where she lives now, and the guy wanted to buy it. He never stated a figure, but he was interested in it. He said the all steel construction meant it could handle heavy projects. I'm unsure exactly what he meant by heavy. I have no plans to sew chaps or a saddle, but I can see it doing denim seams and other such projects.

> I'm starting sewing lessons, and my husband is going to load it in the car so I can show the instructor. I have a lighter machine for class, also of that era, and also a made-up brand. It isn't as heavy, but, it takes my mistakes. A friend recommends always having a non-computer as a back-up. Like a car, more dependable because there are fewer things to go wrong, and cheaper repairs, but not as fancy looking, and not capable of a lot of fancy. Just solidly dependable.

> I suppose it's all in what you want. I mostly do quilt piecing, and I am starting to do clothing. I look it as a solid dependable machine to learn the basics. Given what I want to do, I may never upgrade, but it is a good machine on which to learn.

I have one that was my grandmother's. The warranty says 1956 ( I think...the date is smudged.) She lived in SW ohio.
