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.
