I walked all over the store, but the machine was begging to be rescued. I forced myself to leave with my husband and sister in law and bemoaned the lavender machine all the way back to her house. Since I had a headache, I took a nap and while I was sleeping, my husband went back and got it for $20.00. It was there when I woke up. I was afraid to plug it in in case something nasty transpired. I did not think burning down my sister in law's condo a week before it closed was a good idea. I found the manual online and downloaded it.
When we returned to Buffalo, I oiled it all and then started it up. Perfect running. Now I am just waiting for the bobbin case to see how it stitches. I polished it a bit, waiting for the case. The lavender is just so lovely, so real retro. I could not resist the siren song of the lavender Kenmore.
