Angela ~ Meet Dottie! My New/Old Sewing Machine

Meet my new sewing machine Dottie. 

She's a 1940 model with a very heavy wood cabinet, which needs a little love on the outside. 

She needs new wires that actually have a covering, yikes! 

But she moves freely when I spin the wheel and has 4 boxes of attachments. 
Best of all I got her for $20 at a yard sale. 

She's not the treadle machine I wanted but she will do what I need her to do after rewiring and a bit more cleaning. Refinishing the cabinet will come later.
