And open...its a perfect 1970s orange and green!
This terrific looking sewing machine is not mine-its my friend Hannah's. Her husband found it next to the rubbish bin! and brought it in for her to look at and she brought it right over. They were afraid to try to see if it sewed-'course I wasn't! We opened it up and threaded it (a bobbin was already in) and I could see that it was really dirty inside. We plugged it in....and it sewed :) but not correctly :(. She's taking it over to the sewing machine man in Tiberias for a good cleaning and then a diagnosis....the motor is good and I'm hoping the problem is minor (or maybe just because of the dirt). I'll let you know ....I sure hope this beauty gets well soon.
