I was adopted by a "new" machine today!
I was driving in a nearby town today and the main street was blocked because of an accident so I turned right and went down a sidestreet. There on the front yard was a Singer 15 in a nice maple table with a free sign on her. Of course I stopped! As I was struggling to get her into the van a gentleman came out of his house and offered his help. The machine belonged to his wife who had recently gone into a nursing home. He hoped the machine would go to someone who would appreciate it and I said I would. His wife's name is Mary and I found the machine on Fairview Dr. near Mary St. I was so meant to go down that street today! And I have named her .......Mary!
Just checked the serial number and it was allotted on March 27th 1950.....exactly 2 years before I was born!
I will take pictures tomorrow in the sun .....she is pretty!
