She's gadgety, so she's been servicing it herself.
I actually have 3 sewing machines, the Singer which I bought last year, the crappy White my grandma bought me 18 years ago, and my grandmother's PFAFF 332 that my mom gave me when Gram passed away almost 3 years ago. The PFAFF is from the 50's as well, and has 2 dozen attachments I've never seen before that look like medieval torture devices, I have thus far only been able to find a book in .jpeg format, but the local singer shop is willing to show me how it works.
As for me today, I woke up with terrible back pain and it is laundry day so I am considering a long soak in a hot tub.
