I was extremely excited to get a fan-dangled new sewing machine for my birthday this year. Let me tell ya, I have never had a modern sewing machine and this thing can do things I never imagined! It can do it all!
Anyways, I have a very sturdy Montgomery Ward sewing machine that I would love to gift to anyone who is in need. It was gifted to me a few years ago. I am by no means an excellent sewer, but it served my purposes. I'm not going to lie, using this machine is not a walk in the park all the time. The stitch selector is very sticky and difficult to adjust. That is the main frustration. Perhaps it is something that could be easily repaired, I don't know. It is never something I had the time or money to look in to. But other than that, it sews well, and is VERY sturdy. It is one of those old style-powerhouse-metal frame machines that can power through thick layers of fabric.
It comes with a hard carrying case, several foots that I would never hope to identify, seam ripper, cleaning brush, 3 bobbins, extra needles, mini screwdriver, and attachments case.
If you are in need of a sewing machine, or know someone who is, please let me know! I will keep it for a week (November 17th), and if I have no takers, I'm getting rid of it.
