New Addition

We went to an auction today in Okawville, Il.  There were two auction rooms and one room had loads of what we refer to as garage sale junk with a few treasures sprinkled here and there.  The second room had much better stuff….including this new addition to my sewing machine family ๐Ÿ™‚

New FeatherweightMy new featherweight is a scroll plate!

Scroll PlateAnd she came with her little black box, an original manual and many accoutrements.

Little Black BoxAccoutrementsI brought her home, oiled her parts, re-assembled her tension assembly correctly and now she sews beautifully.  Not only that but she is so quiet, she just purrs.  Oh happy dance ๐Ÿ™‚
