Born in the USA in Elizabeth New Jersey on March the 20th 1958. This darling little green lady is a seamstress's dream come true!

This pretty gal has a shorter bed than the larger models and features straight lock stitch with forward and reverse belt driven gears and the same engine size as the larger machines .6 Amps 110-120 volts and 25 to 75 cycles.

This fabulous machine comes in her original protective wooden box complete with scuff marks and a bit of wear and discoloration. "Aye. 'Tis the box that has keep this beauty from ruin!"

They don't make 'em like this any more.
Gone but not forgotten
