My middle child, Justin (25yrs), finally moved out to his own apartment a few months ago. Since then, he comes over just about every weekend to wash clothes and conserve his electricity. I don't usually mind but sometimes he wears out his welcome. I realize this may sound selfish to some, but I've been a single mom since I was 16 yrs old and I'm super excited about finally being an empty-nester and I like having my house to myself.
It came in this black case. With the words Peau Soin D'Amour on the case, I figured it wasn't a true sewing machine case. Especially since the machine itself is a Riccar. Google later confirmed Peau Soin D'Amour is a brand of cosmetics.
Riccar was once a major Japanese producer of sewing machines but today the company mostly manufactures vacuum cleaners. I know for sure the machine is at least 31 years old because the sales receipt that is stapled to the back cover of the instruction manual and it was purchased for $199 cash on March 27, 1985.
Babylock Quilters Choice Professional (Wilma) so I'm super excited about the zig-zag stitch and the free arm on the Riccar 8400.
Lillyella pattern and will be available in this month's Stash Builder Box on June 14, 2016.

Zenia, there really is a special place in heaven for mothers of boys.ReplyDelete
So nice that they are growing up and having the initiative to bust out on their own!
My sister babies her son. I think he will live at home forever
I think you struck gold with that Riccar. They really are very very good machines
They work hard. I do not have and fancy new machines but I have a nice herd of Singers, ....and a few others.
Your boys are handsome. They look like good boys.
I should have had my kids young. Now I am pooped :-/
All of us need to keep seeking God.
Hi Zenia. I had a Riccar - I forget the number now - which I purchased in 1986. It was a great machine and when I upgraded to a Bernina I sold it on and presume it is still working well. Enjoy your machine. Great boys. xxReplyDelete
Lovely article - one of the best things I've recently read, and by far the most useful. Thanks for the info, you made it easy to understand. Maybe you would be interested in an online service with a ton of Form templates (tax, real estate, legal, business, insurance forms, etc..) I used it to fill out http://goo.gl/4H7nw8ReplyDelete
