This is my latest acquisition. She's gorgeous. She works. I'm not sure why I had to have her, but I did. She's quiet and a lot cleaner for her age than I ever thought she'd be. I took the covers off the head and the back and the throat plates, and other than a little felt/lint under the feed dogs, she really looked pretty clean.
Instead of being relegated to the garage with the machines, she rated a place in my office.
I've bid on a newer buttonholer that can make keyhole buttonholes, but this old one came with the machine. So I thought I'd oil her up and give her a try. Now if I can only figure out how to tell where the buttonhole is going to end up on the fabric before I stitch it, I'll be happy.
