So, I'm pretty new to the sewing scene. I called good ol' grandma to see if I could use her machine (ok... It's not my thread injector, but its at my disposal).
Anyway, I was working on the project and she comes in and shows me the receipt from where she bought it in 1955. (She had a cookie recipe on the back...mmmmmm cookies) They paid $256. That's like a months wages back then. The old singer still purrs like a kitten. I thought it would be cool to share.
