The machine I first learned on was my mom's 30+yr old viking, really nice machine. I have borrowed it on and off over the years, she did make me give it back to her though. I had a $60 special brother that was a piece of junk. Should have gone to the thrift stores instead of buying that one.
The machine's I have now are a 1972 kenmore. Thanks again Ken its sews really nice, your machines are beautiful.
And a seiko needle feed/ walking foot machine, I love this sewing machine.
