What you may not know, Chris, is that this sewing machine was bought by your granpa Coy for me...I had been using my mom's machine but it wouldn't do much stuff, so granpa brought home a series of "portable" machines for me to try out. (The sewing machine dealer was right across the street from his appliance store). The first one he brought home was a Phaff (German) so heavy that I couldn't lift it but a very nice stitcher. This Viking was ahead of its time as it did zig-zag and fancy stitches when you changed out the cams. The first thing I sewed on it was a wind breaker jacket for you dad. I was brave in those days about tackling sewing projects!
