I was bummed about having to go to grad school sans sewing machine (no room in the car
) so I was really excited to find this in the goodwill yesterday for $10 (a price even a starving student can afford). From what I've been able to gather off the internet it is a Dressmaker deluxe zig-zag #31 model KNS (serial # 060909). I know it was made in Japan, but if anyone has any information on an approximate age, or how easy it will be to find needles or extra feet, I would be eternally grateful. It runs like a top at the moment, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue to do so for a good long time.
