It is a Singer 4423 Heavy duty sewing machine that I paid $126.76 with free shipping from Amazon. It arrived in about 5 days.
Of course,there are many sewing machines that can be purchased for much less, but, my wife has had good results with this one.
Oh! That is a heavy duty one for sure. I grew up into my sewing on cast iron industrial sewing machines. Looking for much lighter.
I will wait, no rush at all.
Also, Gilda a few years back, (17 now,) before I was online I scoured a few libraries reading everything I could about simple living, simplistics, and living with less. I was working as a live in Nanny at the time and was down to a car load of items but, didn't have a car just then and still felt I had too much.
Fast forward these 15 years and I've completed my degrees, gone into the service and moved countless times. Picked up new hobbies and the items that go with them, built a home base of a house, married, divorced and downsized again. Right now as I am in my motel room with everything I am sure it will fit in the back of my small bed pick up but, know that I could trim a lot more!! It has grown again in the last month.<_<
