So I had her serviced and she purrs like a dream. I have it in the original 1954 cabinet. The one disappointing thing is that there were once four drawers. There were four drawers when it left California and in the moving around and shuffling of things, two of the drawers were lost. :( We’ve made some phone calls to the folks they stayed with along the way but, so far, no dice. I’m really hoping they can find the other drawers.
It has a decorative stitching function that I can’t seem to get to work. I need to write more on that OldPfaffForum and see if they can help me out. It zigzags and does straight stitches beautifully. I just wish I could figure out how to make it do the decorative stitches.
The two drawers that did make it to Alaska, contained a lot of cool, old stuff. I’m not sure what to do with it all. There are a ton of these sail needles. She used to make wedding dresses so it seems like delicate needles would be more of what she would use. These are really hefty triangular needles.
Is there any market for this kind of thing? Should I just toss it? The family took a few things out of the drawers (one of my fiance’s brother’s baby teeth, ewwwwwwwwwwwwww) and they said to throw away the rest. I have a really hard time throwing things like this away. What should I do with it?
